Now it’s official: Kansas University will head to Bramlage Wednesday night not just protecting an unscathed record in the Manhattan arena, but also a 20-0 record for the 2007-08 season. For the second time this month, KU took off right from go and ended up throttling its neighbor to the north, besting Nebraska 84-49 Saturday afternoon in Allen Fieldhouse. Darrell Arthur was efficient yet again despite tweaking a calf muscle in practice Tuesday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting. The sophomore forward also had seven rebounds. Brandon Rush scored 17 for the Jayhawks, including a 5-of-7 showing from three-point range. Darnell Jackson (13 points) and Sherron Collins (10 points) were the only other Jayhawks to notch double figures as KU improved to 5-0 in Big 12 play.
