LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Lagerald Vick scored a career-high 23 points on near-perfect shooting, Svi Mykhailiuk had 14 and fourth-ranked Kansas rolled to a 91-61 victory over Long Beach State on Tuesday night.

Josh Jackson added 13 points and Devonte Graham had 12 for the Jayhawks (6-1), who doubled up the 49ers (1-8) at 50-25 out of the break and coasted to their 44th straight win at Allen Fieldhouse.

Vick was 9 for 9 from the floor, one shy of the school record held by Norm Cook and Danny Manning, and hit four 3-pointers. His only miss came on the second of two free throws with 5:47 left.

Justin Bibbins had 13 points to lead Long Beach State, which has lost eight in a row – all on the road and mostly to teams that will be in the NCAA Tournament.
