Rock Chalk Chant loud and clear at Allen Fieldhouse at 1:35 mark. -KUSports.com

To no one's surprise, the Kansas Jayhawks took care of Washburn, 92-62.

Predicted to be among the best players in the Big 12 Conference (again), Marcus Morris started off the 2010 season on the right foot with 28 points and seven boards. He was 80 percent from the field and dominated at the free throw line, 11-11.

His brother, Markieff, and Tyshawn Taylor added 12. Markieff left for a few minutes with an ankle injury but returned.

The competition level wasn't up to what KU will see most of the season but they still dominated at the free throw line hitting 91 percent of their attempts. On the bad side, they made only 22 percent of their three point attempts.

This is KU's 36th consecutive exhibition victory and 22nd under Bill Self.

Washburn goes onto play Kansas State and UNLV while the Jayhawks look to Emporia State on Nov. 9 and the regular season opener against Longwood on Nov. 12.
