LAWRENCE, Kan. -- For the second time in 10 months, the University of Maryland Baltimore County took a beating from the University of Kansas.

The Jayhawks routed the Retrievers, 122-58, last night before a sellout crowd of 15,800 in Allen Field House.

Last January, on its way to the Final Four, Kansas beat UMBC, 97-46. The Jayhawks, ranked No. 12 in the nation, dominated every phase of play and were bearing down on defense and running their fast break even in the final minutes.

The Retrievers experienced cold spells at the start of each half and shot 32 percent from the field. Kansas, getting easy buckets from its big men, wound up hitting 64 percent of its shots.

The 64-point spread was the third-highest victory margin in Kansas history. The 122 points were the Jayhawks' fourth-highest total of all time.
