It didn't come easy, but No. 2 Kansas was able to pull away from No. 15 Eastern Kentucky late in the second half.
With the game in hand at 74-64 with less than a minute to play, Jayhawks freshman Andrew Wiggins put an exclamation point on the victory with an emphatic dunk.
Wiggins also had a jaw-dropping alley-oop earlier in the game, so he will be on plenty of highlight reels later in the day.
Kansas pulled out an 80-69 victory, thanks to 19 points from Wiggins.
