McLemore's 22 gives Kansas huge road win, 74-66


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Redshirt freshman Ben McLemore scored 22 points and No. 9 Kansas proved it was more than just a bully at home by beating seventh-ranked Ohio State 74-66 on Saturday.

It was the third victory for the Jayhawks (10-1) in little more than a year over the Buckeyes (9-2). Kansas won a 64-62 thriller in last year's NCAA semifinals.

The Jayhawks, who had yet to play a true road game, held Ohio State without a field goal for more than 10 minutes of the second half. The Buckeyes, who were led by Deshaun Thomas' 16 points, hit just 9 of 36 shots from the field in the final 20 minutes.

Jeff Withey added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Jayhawks.
