COLUMBIA, Mo. - It certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Kansas University men’s basketball team found a way in the second half to avoid the fate suffered by fellow Top-5 residents North Carolina and UCLA Saturday, knocking off Missouri 76-70 in Mizzou Arena. The Tigers jumped out to a 7-1 lead right off the bat on the Jayhawks, but KU fought back with a 9-2 run and from there, it was a slugfest until the closing minutes. Darnell Jackson and Darrell Arthur played much of the second half in foul trouble in a game ruled by an abundance of whistles.
