Jayhawks Cruise Past Aggies

Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich each had 16 points and Kansas cruised past Texas A&M 73-53 Monday night, stretching its home winning streak to 35 in a row.

The Jayhawks (14-4, 3-0 Big 12) haven't lost in Allen Fieldhouse since Texas A&M beat them 69-66 on Feb. 3, 2007. The Aggies (15-4, 1-3) are still the only Big 12 South team to win in Lawrence since the conference was formed in 1996.

Tayshawn Taylor and Mario Little each hit their first four shots as the Jayhawks roared to a big early lead, which reached 16-4 when Collins drove in for a layup at the 14:49 mark. Little, coming off the bench, scored seven straight points and helped put the Jayhawks on top 40-23 at halftime. Little wound up with 15 points and Marcus Morris had 10.

Bryan Davis and B.J. Holmes each had eight points for the Aggies, whose 20 turnovers were almost twice their season average.
