LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Tarik Black scored 19 points on perfect shooting in his final game at Allen Fieldhouse, and No. 8 Kansas managed just fine without injured center Joel Embiid in an 82-57 romp over Texas Tech Wednesday night.
Black, a senior transfer from Memphis, finished 9 of 9 from the field, matching the school record for field goal attempts without a miss held by C.J. Giles (2005) and Mark Randall (1990).
Freshman forward Andrew Wiggins, also likely playing in his final home game, added nine points for the Jayhawks (23-7, 14-3 Big 12), who have already wrapped up their 10th consecutive Big 12 title. Naadir Tharpe came off the bench to contribute 16 points and five assists.
Toddrick Gotcher scored 10 points to lead the Red Raiders (13-17, 5-12), who trailed by 20 points at halftime and never threatened down the stretch in losing their sixth straight game.
Texas Tech has never won in 14 tries at Allen Fieldhouse.
