KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Frank Mason scored 30 points to match his career high, Devonte Graham and Josh Jackson also had big games and No. 3 Kansas rolled to a 105-62 victory over Missouri-Kansas City on Tuesday night to give coach Bill Self career win No. 600.
Jackson had 19 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, while Graham was 6 of 8 from beyond the arc and finished with 18 points as the Jayhawks (8-1) allowed Self to empty his bench early again.
He became the ninth-fastest coach to reach 600 wins, just behind Phog Allen, whose name adorns their building. The former Oral Roberts, Tulsa and Illinois coach is 394-84 with the Jayhawks, and Self’s mark of 212-9 at Allen Fieldhouse is downright absurd considering the Jayhawks’ typically rugged schedule.
Of course, their game against UMKC (6-4) was essentially over the moment the contract was signed.
