Though the weather made it feel like home for the Cowboys, the Jayhawks weren't quite so hospitable.

Nick Collison scored early and often, tallying his 28 points on 10-12 shooting from the floor. He also added another double-double to his career total, as he grabbed 11 rebounds - including four on the offensive end.

Here's some more quick hits from the boxscore, and there are plenty of highlights to choose from:

  • Hinrich - 19 points, 7-13 from the floor and 4-6 from behind the 3-point line.
  • Graves - Another double-double for the recent starting big man, grabbing 10 boards and scoring 14 points on 56% shooting from the floor. Graves also was Kansas' leading shot blocker, swatting 3 from inside.
  • Langford - He's automatic, folks. 5-7 from the field, 16 points for the night.
  • Miles - What a night for the sophomore. Aaron led the team in steals (5), assists (8) and still managed to knock in 14 points, including 2-3 from behind the arc.

Leading scorer for the Cowboys was Donta Richardson with 29.
