LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Wayne Selden Jr. scored 21 points, Cliff Alexander added 12 off the bench and No. 11 Kansas used a massive second-half run to overcome an 18-point deficit and beat Florida 71-65 Friday night.

Frank Mason III also scored 12 points and Perry Ellis finished with 10 for the Jayhawks (6-1), who trailed 39-24 at halftime before using a brutally effective 17-0 surge to seize control.

Kansas wound up out-scoring the Gators 47-26 in the second half.

Devin Robinson scored 13 points and Chris Walker had 12 for Florida, which is off to its worst start through seven games since it also started 3-4 during the 1990-91 season.
