Defense Shines in Kansas Win Over Detroit
Thomas Robinson contributed 16 points and 13 rebounds, and Kansas used a stifling defensive effort to take a 65-50 victory over Detroit on Friday night in the round of 64 of the NCAA Tournament at Century Link Center in Omaha, Neb.
KU won despite playing much of the second half without Tyshawn Taylor, who left the game with leg cramps, according to a CBS report.
The Jayhawks held the Titans to 32-percent shooting (20-for-63) and 18-percent shooting from three-point range (3-for-17).
Elijah Johnson added 15 points on 6-for-8 shooting, while Taylor was the only other KU player in double figures with 10.
KU (28-6) will play 10th-seeded Purdue at 7:40 p.m. Sunday.
