LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Devon Dotson drove through a crowd of West Virginia players, stopped in his tracks and passed the ball across the key, finding K.J. Lawson alone in the corner. Without hesitation, Lawson sunk his third 3-pointer of the game before running down the court celebrating with his brother, Dedric.
K.J. Lawson scored a season-high 15 points in 24 minutes, the first time he's played more than 20 minutes since transferring from Memphis, and No. 14 Kansas beat the Mountaineers 78-53 on Saturday.
"I'm real happy for him, and it's nice to see guys hang in there, and when their number is called they're ready, and he's been ready," Kansas coach Bill Self said.
