The Kansas Jayhawks (18-1, 6-0 Big 12) extended their winning streak to 17 straight games after defeating the Oklahoma Sooners (13-5, 4-2 Big 12) 67-54 in Lawrence.

It was their 33rd consecutive home victory and continued their dominant streak in a building where they've only lost once in the past six season.

The Jayhawks were led by freshman sensation Ben McLemore who led the team with 18 points. He also added seven boards and was key in the second half.

Jeff Withey was the story in the paint adding 13 points, nine rebounds and four blocks. The Sooners were never able to find a solution for the big man's inside dominance.

Oklahoma stated close for most of the game but was undone by their poor shooting. They were led by Amath M'Baye who contributed 12 points and seven boards in the losing effort.
