LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Darrell Arthur scored nine points in a second-half surge that carried No. 4 Kansas past Missouri 90-71 Monday night, giving the Jayhawks their 20th straight home victory and a season sweep of their archrivals.
Brandon Rush scored 19 points for the Jayhawks (22-1, 7-1 Big 12), going 7-for-13 from the field.
Jason Horton and Darryl Butterfield entered the game midway through the first half, giving Missouri (13-10, 3-5) a full complement of players for the first time, except for injured Stefhon Hannah, since a fight outside a Columbia, Mo., nightclub in the early morning hours of Jan. 27.
Hannah, who had 23 points and six assists in Missouri's six-point loss to Kansas on Jan. 19, broke his jaw in the altercation and four players were suspended indefinitely. Leo Lyons and Marshall Brown were reinstated for Saturday's 77-74 victory over then-No. 22 Kansas State.
But Butterfield and Horton did not return until about 9 minutes remained in the first half of Kansas' ninth straight home win over the Tigers.
7-19 lead and were in the middle of a 13-6 run that Rush capped with a 3-pointer that made it 36-23.
Keon Lawrence played 36 minutes and had 25 points for Missouri. DeMarre Carroll, J.T. Tiller and Lyons all had 13.
The Jayhawks rolled into halftime with a 45-33 lead en route to their 30th victory in their last 31 regular-season games.
Louisville 71, No. 16 Marquette 57
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Edgar Sosa scored 18 points and Jerry Smith added 12 to help Louisville end Marquette's 14-game home winning streak.
The Golden Eagles (16-5, 6-4 Big East) shot 32 percent from the field. In their previous matchup last month, Louisville dominated 71-51 in Freedom Hall by holding Marquette to 30.4 percent shooting.
Louisville (17-6, 7-3 Big East) didn't have nearly as tough a time as last year when Smith, from the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa, made a 3-pointer at the buzzer for a two-point victory.
Wesley Matthews had 15 points for Marquette, and Jerel McNeal finished with 11.
