LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Andrew Wiggins scored 22 points, fellow freshman Wayne Selden added 20 and No. 18 Kansas beat 25th-ranked Kansas State 86-60 on Saturday in its latest Sunflower Showdown beat down.
Another of the Jayhawks’ ballyhooed freshmen, Joel Embiid, contributed 11 points and nine rebounds, and Perry Ellis scored 12 in their sixth straight win over their I-70 rivals.
Kansas (11-4, 2-0 Big 12) shot 56 percent from the field and committed just seven turnovers while beating the Wildcats (12-4, 2-1) for the 48th time in the last 51 meetings. That includes eight wins in the Big 12 tournament, among them last year’s championship game.
The defeat ended the Wildcats’ 10-game winning streak.
