The class of Russell Robinson, Darnell Jackson, Sasha Kaun, Rodrick Stewart and Jeremy Case finished their home careers as KU waxed Texas Tech 109-51, improving to 27-3 overall and 12-3 in Big 12 play. Chants of ‘Thank-you-seniors’ replaced the Rock Chalk hymn in the final minute, as each senior played a role in the most emphatic win of the season.
