Nebraska ran into a hot-shooting Jayhawk squad focused on snapping a two-game losing streak. KU (11-6, 2-2) shot a blistering 72 percent (21-of-29) in the first half, the highest shooting percentage in a half of any Big 12 game in school history. The Jayhawks finished the game 37-of-62 from the field while becoming just the second team to score 80 or more points against the Huskers this season.
NU remained close early, before a 16-0 KU run turned a 20-15 lead into a commanding 21-point lead.
Nebraska returns to action on Wednesday, Jan. 25 when the Huskers travel to Boulder, Colo., for an 8 p.m. tip with the Colorado Buffaloes.
