OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Brandon Rush scored 18 points, and top-seeded
Kansas romped to an 85-61 victory over a Portland State team that
got quite a hazing in its first NCAA tournament appearance
Thursday. The Jayhawks' five seniors and Rush, a junior star who
might be headed to the NBA, are determined to go out in style after
some bitter disappointments in the tournament.

Jeremiah Dominguez led Portland State with 13 points, but Alex
Tiefenthaler was his only teammate in double figures with 10.
Arthur had 17 points, Mario Chalmers 16 and Jackson 10 for
Kansas. Ten players scored for the Jayhawks.
Kansas moves on to play the winner of the UNLV-Kent St. game.
