LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points, Andrew White III added 13 and second-ranked Kansas raced to an 88-58 victory over Towson on Friday night to open the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament.
Wayne Selden finished with 12 points and Perry Ellis had 10 for the Jayhawks (4-0), who built a 49-16 lead by halftime and never looked back. They’ll head to the Bahamas next week to continue the tournament against Wake Forest on Thanksgiving Day.
Jerrelle Benimon had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead Towson (3-2), which knocked off Temple earlier in the season. Rafriel Guthrie scored 15 points off the bench.
The Jayhawks had struggled early in games this season, allowing at least 35 points in the first half of each of them. But they had no trouble against the Colonial Athletic Association favorite.
