Kansas Turns Back Eastern Kentucky

Associated Press - March 21, 2014 10:01 pm

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points, Jamari Traylor and Perry Ellis had double-doubles and second seeded Kansas pulled away down the stretch to beat pesky Eastern Kentucky 80-69 Friday in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Traylor finished with 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Ellis had 14 points and 13 boards for the Jayhawks (25-9), who trailed 56-53 with 9 minutes to go before their game ending charge.

They advanced to play No. 10 seed Stanford, a 58-53 winner over seventh seeded New Mexico, Sunday in the third round of the South Regional.

Glenn Cosey hit five 3-pointers and had 17 points for the 15th seeded Colonels (24-10), the Ohio Valley Conference champions. Tarius Johnson and Eric Stutz finished with 15 points apiece.
