Red Raiders Drop to 0-3 in Big 12 Losing to Kansas, 89-63

Marcus Morris had 20 points, Xavier Henry added 14 and No. 3 Kansas overcame a sloppy start by getting the ball inside to rout Texas Tech 89-63 on Saturday.

Kansas (16-1, 2-0 Big 12) wasn't sharp at the start of its conference home opener, flinging passes and airballs all over the building. The Jayhawks straightened out just before halftime, working the ball inside to start the rout and extend their nation-best home winning streak to 52 straight.

John Roberson had 16 points for Texas Tech (12-5, 0-3), which hadn't won at Allen Fieldhouse in 10 previous trips and never stood much of a chance at ending the futility.

The Red Raiders, who lost by 58 points here two years ago, trailed by 24 after an abysmal offensive first half and never recovered to open conference play with three straight losses for the first time since an 0-9 start in 1999-2000.
