KU Basketball Scores Way To Big First Half Lead Over Oklahoma State

The Kansas Jayhawks are looking good once again. For the second time since losing to Kansas State last Monday, KU basketball is dominating an opponent. Last Saturday it was Colorado and Monday night it's Oklahoma State.

Kansas has looked strong in the first half against Oklahoma State taking a 52-28 lead.

-Elijah Johnson, not Josh Selby, started the game. ESPN's Holly Rowe reported Selby couldn't practice much recovering from an injury. He wanted to give it to the guys who practiced I suppose. I thin that's a fair outcome. Selby came into the game within the first five minutes of the game. 

-The Morris twins are looking really, really good. Marcus has 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting while Markieff has scored seven points on 3-of-4 shooting. Remember, it was just last week that both Morris twins and KU lost to Kansas State. These are two different guys tonight.

-This game is getting agressive. An intentional foul on OSU's J.P. Otulemi game KU a couple of free throw attempts. Marshall Moses looked to be playing physical against both of the Morris twins.

-Thomas Robinson is back after undergoing surgery for a meniscus tear on February 11. The original diagnosis on him was two weeks, according to Bill Self, but he's back already. In the first half he hit 2-of-3 shots for six points. ESPN's Holly Rowe reported Robinson was expected to play only about 10 minutes at the advice of doctors.

-Tyshawn Taylor isn't playing after Bill Self announced earlier on Monday he had been suspended.
