Marcus Morris scored 10 points in the first 5 minutes after intermission, igniting a second-half stampede that carried No. 7 Kansas to a 93-60 victory over North Texas on Friday night that tied the team record for consecutive home wins.
Morris, held to just four points in the first half while twin brother Markieff did most of the work, scored 16 points in a 31-8 run that turned a 36-27 halftime lead into a 67-35 runaway. Marcus Morris finished with 20 points. Markieff scored nine of the Jayhawks' first 11 points and wound up with 13 points and eight rebounds.
The Jayhawks (3-0) haven't lost in Allen Fieldhouse since Feb. 3, 2007, and have won 62 in a row at home, tying the record set under former coach Roy Williams from 1994-98. They'll go for the record-breaker Tuesday night against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
