Robinson Leads KU to Win Over Aggies

College Station, Texas - Behind a career-high 24 points from Russell Robinson, the University of Kansas men's basketball team defeated Texas A&M, 83-73, at Reed Arena in College Station, Texas. The win improves KU to 12-6 on the season and 3-2 in Big 12 play.

After being down two at halftime, the Jayhawks scored the second half's first 16 points to stay on top for the remainder of the game. Two straight three-point baskets got the Aggies to within four at 10:10 left in the game, but great foul shooting down the stretch preserved the win for the Jayhawks. KU finished the game 27-of-36 from the line, including a 12-of-13 performance from Robinson.

In addition to Robinson's career night, a pair of freshmen also had great games for Kansas. Guard Brandon Rush scored 22 points on the evening, good for his Big 12-leading fourth 20-plus point effort. Mario Chalmers tied a career high in assists with eight to go along with his 15 points.

Acie Law led Texas A&M with 17 points and Joseph Jones added 15. The win helped KU remain perfect against the Aggies at 11-0.

The Jayhawks travel to Ames this Saturday, Jan. 28, for a match up with Iowa State. The game tips off at 11 a.m. and can be seen nationally on ESPN.
