Kansas Jayhawks Vs. Valparaiso Crusaders: Marcus, Markieff Morris Lead The Way

The Kansas Jayhawks took care of business against Valparaiso in Lawrence, Kan. on Monday extending their ridiculous home winning streak to 61 games. The Jayhawks looked very good in the 79-44 victory over Valpo. Marcus Morris led all scorers with 22 points and added 11 rebounds. His brother, Markieff, recorded his second straight double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds. Thomas Robinson had 10 boards and just missed the double-double with eight points while Tyshawn Taylor had five assists and eight points.

The Morris twins' continue to dominate combining for 34 points and 22 rebounds. Here's what head coach Bill Self had to say about them after the game:

"(They're good) If you can get one of them not to foul, and play more than two minutes in the first half. They're good, they are good players. They do a little bit of everything. The game's still a little slow motion for them for the most part."

Marcus Morris on the game:

"I think I got into a rhythm early and just made shots and my teammates helped me and they were able to get rebounds and finish it when I missed."

Markieff Morris on the game:

"Coach just told me that it was going to be my half. I tried to bring energy by rebounding the ball and defending. I don't think we played very good inside-post defense, but other than that I thought we played pretty well."

Everything went pretty smooth for the Jayhawks. It was a 14-11 game at one point before KU pushed it to 44-27. The announcers talked about the one thing all KU teams had in common and that's their ability to go on big runs where they're almost unstoppable and that was the case on Monday night.
