Behind 15 points from freshman Perry Ellis, Kansas took care of business Tuesday night with an 88-54 exhibition win over Emporia State at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence.
With a nearly even minutes distribution, 12 of the 14 players who saw the floor scored points, including strong outings from freshmen Ben McLemore, who had 11 points, and Andrew White III, who added 10.
“We may have set the NCAA record for substitutions,” Kansas coach Bill Self said after the game. “We were trying to make it difficult on our radio team.
“It was good to see those young kids play well. We saw how athletic Ben [McLemore] and Jamari [Traylor] are. There were some good things that happened tonight.”
With Missouri moving to the SEC, one key threat to a ninth straight Big 12 championship is gone, but the lineup will be looking to young players like McLemore and Ellis for production.
