LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Markieff Morris had 26 points and 15 rebounds and No. 1 Kansas bounced back from a lopsided loss to Kansas State with an 89-63 victory over Colorado, the Buffaloes' 28th straight defeat in Lawrence.
Brady Morningstar hit his first four 3-pointers to help the Jayhawks (25-2, 10-2 Big 12) get off to a flying start after their brand-new No. 1 ranking was tarnished Monday night by a shocking 84-68 loss at the home of the unranked Wildcats.
Colorado (16-11, 5-7) will go into the Pac-10 next year with a 5-52 record in Allen Fieldhouse. The last time the Buffs won in Lawrence, their coach, Tad Boyle, was a sophomore on Larry Brown's Jayhawk team in 1983.
Alec Burks had 15 points for the Buffs and Cory Higgins had 14.
