Early surge carries Kansas past Missouri 72-59


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Danielle McCray scored 26 points, Sade Morris added 15 and Kansas used a near-perfect first half to beat Missouri 72-59 Sunday.

McCray scored 20 first-half points in helping the Jayhawks build a comfortable 28-point halftime lead. She outscored the entire Missouri team in the first half and made 8 of 10 shots.

Kansas grabbed control early with a 20-6 run that added pressure for a poor shooting Missouri squad.

The Tigers, who were led by RaeShara Brown's 15 points, shot just 30 percent in the first half while committing 14 turnovers. Amanda Hanneman chipped in 12 as Missouri trailed by at least 13 in the second half.

Kansas, meanwhile, shot 59 percent in the first half.

Both teams entered Sunday with three-game losing streaks, including 0-2 starts in the Big 12.
