The Kansas Jayhawks (20-4, 8-3) broke out of their three-game losing streak in style on Monday night as they cruised past in-state rival Kansas State (19-5, 8-3), 83-62.

The Jayhawks received contributions from everyone on their roster but the standout performer was freshman guard Ben McLemore. 

McLemore missed just four shots on his way to a game-high 30 points on his 20th birthday.

Bill Self's team also received an excellent performance off of the bench from Naadir Tharpe, who scored seven points and provided eight assists. 

In the losing effort for the Wildcats, Rodney McGruder scored 20 points.

Kansas will host Texas in a Big 12 showdown on Saturday night in Lawrence while Kansas State will return home to take on Baylor on Saturday night.
