Boston - So much for second half woes striking on the road for a third time. The Jayhawks put on a show, start to finish with the exception of a few minutes midway through the second half, and slammed Boston College Saturday on Chestnut Hill, 85-60. It was nearly the same score as last year (84-66), and KU goes down with a sweep of the two-game home-and-home series with the Eagles. Darnell Jackson and Darrell Arthur carried the load in the traditional way to start the game and never let up. The two were able to get more involved in transition late in the game, and finished with a combined 47 points on 19-of-25 shooting. They were also a combined 9-of-10 from the free throw line. The team was 15-of-19 from the stripe.

Wrinkles begin to form, and age spots begin to show. While there’s no miracle cure to stop the aging process, there’s a plethora of services available in Lawrence to help people look younger.
