LAWRENCE, Kan. — Tyshawn Taylor and Connor Teahan scored 13 points each, and No. 17 Kansas emptied its bench during an 89-34 blowout of overmatched, undersized Howard on Thursday night.

Jeff Withey added 10 points, and Thomas Robinson had nine points and seven rebounds while playing a team-high 22 minutes for the Jayhawks (9-3), who opened the game on a 15-2 run and never looked back in one of their most lopsided victories in the Bill Self era.

The 34 points scored by the Bison (4-10) were the fewest allowed by Kansas since a 98-31 win over Alcorn State on Dec. 2, 2009, and the second-fewest since Self took over before the 2003 season.

Prince Okoroh led Howard with seven points, while Glenn Andrews managed just three on 1-for-10 shooting after going for a career-high 28 points in an overtime win over Delaware last week.
