Behind center Jeff Wither's 17 points and 13 rebounds, the Kansas Jayhawks enjoyed an easy victory over the Richmond Spiders, 87-59.

Richmond had trouble hanging with the Jayhawks all night, as Kansas jumped out to a quick double-digit lead in the first half and did not look back. The Spiders did not lead at any point during the night, only getting as close as equalizing the Jayhawks' first basket, a Ben McLemore 3-pointer with Cedrick Lindsay's own connection from three-point territory.

Richmond forward Derrick Williams led the Spiders with 14 points, while Alonzo Nelson-Ododa's nine rebounds were a team high. Off the bench, forward Terry Allen was impressive, pulling down seven rebounds in limited action despite not starting. Lindsay posted 12 points on the night.

Withey's double-double led a team effort from Kansas, which had four players score in double figures. Jayhawks forward Kevin Young led the team with nine rebounds.
