COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A bad night from the field didn't stop
Brandon Rush.
Rush shrugged off 2-for-14 shooting with three key free throws
in the final 64 seconds to help third-ranked Kansas hold off border
rival Missouri 76-70 tonight.
Mario Chalmers had 18 points and Darnell Jackson had 13 points
and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks, who are 18-0 and off to their
best start since a school-record 22-0 in 1996-97.
Rush, the younger brother of former Missouri star Kareem Rush,
went 9-for-14 from the line and finished with 13 points and nine
rebounds.
Stefhon Hannah had 23 points for Missouri, which has lost two
straight since beating then-No. 12 Texas a week ago. The Tigers
ended a 13-game home winning streak, including 10 this season,
although they made the Jayhawks work for it.
