LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Brandon Rush scored 17 points and No. 4 Kansas routed Florida Atlantic 87-49 on Wednesday night, a rude welcome back to Allen Fieldhouse for Rex Walters.
One of the more popular players of the Roy Williams era at Kansas, Walters is in his second season as head coach at Florida Atlantic. The Owls (1-6) were without suspended leading scorer Paul Graham.
Mario Chalmers hit two 3-pointers in a 12-0 run that put Kansas ahead 32-13 and it was never any closer. Darnell Jackson, making his first start of the season, had 13 points and four rebounds and Darrell Arthur had 12 points for the Jayhawks (6-0).
Carderro Nwoji and Sanchez Hughley each had 14 points for Florida Atlantic.
No. 5 Georgetown 66, Old Dominion 48
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Roy Hibbert had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Georgetown, which took control in the second half.
The Hoyas (4-0) got four points each from Jonathan Wallace and Patrick Ewing Jr. and three from Hibbert in an 11-1 run to start the second half, opening a 41-24 lead with 16 minutes to play.
Gerald Lee, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, outplayed the 7-2 Hibbert for the first 20 minutes. He had 16 points and eight rebounds, seven offensive, by halftime. Lee finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds, both career highs.
Last year, ODU won 75-62 at Georgetown.
Austin Freeman added 11 points for the Hoyas and Ewing had nine.
No. 8 Texas 98, Texas Southern 61
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Damion James had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Texas ran its record to 6-0 for only the second time in coach Rick Barnes' 10 seasons.
Texas started the 2005-06 season 8-0. That team shared the Big 12 title and advanced to the regional final of the NCAA tournament.
Texas has won its first six games by at least 15 points, the first time the Longhorns have done that since 1915-16.
D.J. Augustin added 20 points for the Longhorns, who turned 24 turnovers by Texas Southern (1-5) into 34 points.
Kevin Abanobi and Anthony Ike both scored 15 points for Texas Southern, which hit 12 3-pointers.
No. 10 Michigan St. 81, No. 24 North Carolina St. 58
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Goran Suton had 16 points and 12 rebounds and Michigan State cruised.
The Spartans (5-1) have won 30 straight nonconference home games at Breslin Center, extending what was the nation's sixth-longest active streak entering the game that was part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
J.J. Hickson had 21 points and 10 rebounds for N.C. State (4-2), which shot poorly and was dominated on the boards by the Spartans.
Michigan State led by as many as 32 points in the second half before the Wolfpack rallied late to make the final score closer.
Drew Neitzel had 17 points for Michigan State, while Raymar Morgan added 15.
No. 23 Xavier 93, Oakland 68
CINCINNATI (AP) - Stanley Burrell scored 15 points in a tone-setting first half, and Xavier won its fourth straight.
Xavier (5-1) had a 51-point first half fueled by a man-to-man defense that has dramatically improved in the last two weeks.
Once the Musketeers got rolling, Oakland (2-4) couldn't slow them down. Xavier went on 16-2 and 21-2 runs in the first half, when it led by as many as 26 points.
The Grizzlies have dropped consecutive games against nationally ranked teams. They lost 75-71 to No. 10 Michigan State on Saturday.
Josh Duncan of Xavier had 18 points and eight rebounds.
Johnathon Jones scored 17 points to lead Oakland, which blocked nine shots.
