LINCOLN, Neb. - Four days after Bill Self again used a public forum to express his want for Brandon Rush’s offensive aggressiveness to show through, the junior guard responded. Rush scored a game-high 19 points on 5-of-7 three-point shooting, plus went a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line, as KU continued its warpath through the 2007-08 schedule with a 79-58 win at Nebraska to open Big 12 play. Nebraska (12-3 overall, 0-1 Big 12) was led by Aleks Maric, who finished with 16 points. Ryan Anderson was just 3-of-10 from three-point range and scored 12. The Jayhawks (16-0, 1-0) have a quick turnaround, as they’ll host Oklahoma for Big Monday in Allen Fieldhouse at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
