LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Frank Mason III scored 21 points and Perry Ellis added 12 as No. 4 Kansas beats Harvard 75-69 in a sloppy game on Saturday.
Devonte’ Graham also had 12 points for Kansas (6-1).
Freshman reserve Weisner Perez had 15 points, Tommy McCarthy added 11 and Zena Edosomwan had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Crimson (2-6) in their third straight loss.
Midway through the first half, freshman Cheick Diallo pulled up and hit a mid-range jumper to put Kansas up 15-12. That jumper started a 17-4 run for the Jayhawks. Kansas scored only four points in the final 6 minutes of the first half.
The Jayhawks came out of halftime scoring four points in less than 40 seconds, but fell flat offensively after that, going a full 2 minutes without scoring. In that time, Harvard cut Kansas’ lead from 13 to nine, and subsequently got within four after Evan Cummins dunked.
