#3 Kansas Jayhawks Wear Down California Golden Bears, Win 78-63

For more on the game, check out the California Golden Blogs (Cal SB Nation site) and Rock Chalk Talk (Kansas SB Nation site).

It was a rough and tumble affair. 45 fouls were called. Star Marcus Morris was ejected after elbowing Harper Kamp in the head. Jorge Gutierrez went bezerk after getting hit in the eye. There were more turnovers (31) than assists (27).

Ultimately though, it was the talent of the Kansas Jayhawks triumphing over the youth of the California Golden Bears. When Maurice was ejected, his brother Markieff Morris stepped up, scoring 21 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Morris and Thomas Robinson combined for 8 offensive rebounds and 20 rebounds overall in the game, much of their damage coming in the second half. Josh Selby added 18 points (13 in the first half), and Tyrel Reed finished the job with 12 points in the second half to finish with 18 overall.

Gutierrez led the Bears with 15 points, Markhuri Sanders-Frison managed a double double of 10 points and 12 rebounds, Allen Crabbe scored 11. But Cal’s perimeter players continued to struggle: Crabbe shot 4 for 12, Gary Franklin was 3 for 10, and Nigel Carter was 1 for 8. The Bears shot 35% from the field, committed 17 turnovers and missed 14 free throws. Cal falls to 6-5 on the year before their final non-conference test against Hartford next week.
