No. 3 Kansas 81, Kansas State 60

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Third-ranked Kansas and Kansas State ended their bit­ter show­down with a wild melee be­hind the bas­ket that in­cluded punches, shov­ing and at least one player pick­ing up a stool, mo­ments af­ter the Jay­hawks tried to drib­ble out the time on their victory.

Sil­vio De Sousa was stripped by the Wild­cats’ DaJuan Gor­don near mid­court and Gor­don tried to go in for a layup. The Jay­hawks’ big man re­cov­ered and blocked his shot, send­ing Gor­don to the floor, then stood over him bark­ing. That trig­gered benches to empty and punches to be thrown in what amounted to a rugby scrum. At one point, De Souza picked up a stool and held it above his head be­fore as­sis­tant coach Jer­rance Howard grabbed it from him.
