The Kansas bench, at this point populated heavily by the team’s starters, whoops it up in the closing minutes of a 109-51 win.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Russell Robinson's 15 points led No.  5 Kansas in a 109-51 thrashing of Texas Tech on Monday night, the second time in three games the Red Raiders suffered the most lopsided loss in school history.

Texas Tech and rookie coach Pat Knight lost 98-54 at Texas A&M last week, then the biggest loss in school history. Between the losses, the Red Raiders upset then-No.  5 Texas 83-80.

Kansas earned its biggest win ever in a conference game. All but one of its 16 players in uniform scored as coach Bill Self hustled every available one onto the court in the final six minutes.

The Jayhawks finished 20-0 at home, the 14th time they've been unbeaten at 53-year-old Allen Fieldhouse.

The rout began taking on historic proportions with about 10 minutes left when Jeremy Case, a little-used senior, hit a 3-pointer that made it 80-36.

As Self sat looking gloomy, Case hit two more 3-pointers and Cole Aldrich rebounded a miss and hit a hook shot, making it 88-38 with 8:11 left.

Knight, who took over when his father, Bob, stepped down Feb.  4, sat back, arms folded, as Rodrick Stewart hit another 3 for a 91-38 lead.

AP POLL: North Carolina was No.  1 for the first time since Week 10. No.  24 Clemson and No.  25 Davidson entered.


UVA 76, GA. TECH 74: Calvin Baker hit the winning 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds left, and Sean Singletary scored 17 for the visiting Cavaliers.

OOPS: The tiff between North Carolina coach Roy Williams and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski over injury reports was apparently a misunderstanding. The program director at Raleigh sports talk radio station WRBZ-AM said the station incorrectly attributed comments to Krzyzewski last month that upset Williams and led him to respond on his own radio show.

NO.  24 CLEMSON: Guard Cliff Hammonds broke the wrist on his nonshooting hand and might not play at Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Big East

W.  VA. 76, PITT 62: Joe Alexander matched a career high with 32 points as the host Mountaineers passed the Panthers for sixth place in the conference.


ARKANSAS ST.: Nolan Richardson says he is talking with school officials about the coaching vacancy. Richardson has been out of college coaching since being fired by Arkansas in 2002.
