Kansas-Kansas State Final Score: Jayhawks Lose First Game After Taking No. 1 Spot In Both Polls

On the same day they became the No. 1 team in both polls, the Kansas Jayhawks dropped their game to the unranked Kansas St. Wildcats Monday night, 68-84. Kansas held the lead for roughly the first two minutes of the game before the Wildcats took control.

Kansas' Morris Brothers, Marcus and Markieff, struggled throughout the game, combining for 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting and four rebounds.

Kansas State's Jacob Pullen dominated the game, scoring a career-high 38 points. He added three rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block. He went to the free throw line and made 15 of 19. Rodney McGruder, whose last-second shot against the Buffs for the win on Saturday was waived off, and Jordan Henriquez-Roberts were tied for second with 10 points.

The Wildcats shot 55.1 percent from the field whereas the Jayhawks stood at 44.0 percent. The Jayhawks shot 15 three-pointers but made only three.

The Colorado Buffaloes face Kansas this Saturday, hoping their momentum from Saturday's win over Kansas State will carry over on the road at Phog Allen Fieldhouse.

More questions remain atop the polls as the Ohio St. Buckeyes and the Texas Longhorns now set their eyes on No. 1 in the polls.
