LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Jalen Wilson scored 21 points and No. 4 Kansas overcame a frigid performance from 3-point range to beat Harvard 68-54 on Thursday night, keeping the Jayhawks undefeated at home.
The Jayhawks (11-1) went 4 for 20 from behind the arc, with no player besides Gradey Dick hitting one until Wilson made one with just over a minute remaining. Wilson scored 11 points in the final 6:24.

NO. 5 ARIZONA 93, MORGAN STATE 68
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Azuolas Tubelis scored 26 points, Oumar Ballo added 21 and Arizona closed out its nonconference schedule by overpowering Morgan State.
Arizona (12-1) shot 58% and had 25 assists on 34 field goals to stretch the nation’s third-longest active home winning streak to 27 games.
Tubelis finished 9 for 10 from the floor and had the highlight of the night, dribbling the ball around Morgan State’s Isaiah Burke in transition to set up a one-handed jam. Ballo made all eight of his shots.
Malik Miller kept Morgan State (4-8) in it early with 3-point shooting and finished with 23 points. Burke added 22, but the Bears were blown out despite shooting 12 of 23 from the 3-point arc.
