Marcus Morris had a career-high 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Sherron Collins scored 19 to help No. 1 Kansas hold on for a grinding 75-64 win over Michigan on Saturday.

Kansas (10-0) wasn't always crisp in winning its 48th straight home game, using a big first-half run to take the lead and hanging on from there. Xavier Henry had 15 points and the Jayhawks held Michigan to 5-for-28 shooting from 3-point range to overcome 14 sometimes-ugly turnovers and numerous breakdowns on the defensive glass.

Collins was 7 of 10 from the floor after a 1-for-12 game against La Salle.

Michigan (5-5) was again hurt by sporadic defense, playing well for stretches, breaking down completely on others in losing to Kansas for the first time.
