LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas paid homage to its 110-year-old basketball heritage Saturday by stretching its home winning streak against Colorado to a quarter of a century.

With more than 200 former coaches and players looking on, and current players and cheerleaders wearing retro uniforms, the third-ranked Jayhawks ran away in the second half to a 69-45 victory over the Buffaloes.

Colorado star Richard Roby, who had 30 points in Allen Fieldhouse last season, was the primary victim of a fierce defensive effort, going 1-for-11 from the field as Kansas (24-2, 9-2 Big 12) beat Colorado at home for the 25th straight year.

Roby had only two points and the Buffaloes (10-14, 2-8) shot 35 percent.

"We muddied up their stuff pretty good today. Really good," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "We did a great job of taking away backdoors and played to the scouting report about as well as we have all year."

At halftime, the sellout crowd of more than 16,000 came to its feet and remained standing as the former coaches, players and trainers filed onto the court. An invitation-only dinner was planned for Saturday night, but several of the old-timers, including former coach Larry Brown, had been visiting with the players in practice the past couple of days.
