LAWRENCE, Kan. No. 9-ranked Kansas has gained revenge for its recent, 17-point blowout loss at Iowa State.
The Jayhawks (16-3, 5-2 Big 12), who turned it over 24 times against ISU (14-5, 4-3) in a 77-60 setback on Jan. 5, knocked off the No. 24-rated Cyclones 80-76 on Monday night at Allen Fieldhouse.
Not only did the KU victory made possible by a huge 14-0 second-half surge that turned a six-point deficit into an eight-point lead prevent just a second sweep of a home-and-home series in Big 12 play in the 16-year Bill Self era, it continued KUs remarkable success on Big Monday.
