Tywain McKee had 17 points and Rigoberto Sargeant had eight points and seven rebounds for Coppin State, but the Eagles lost to No. 23 Kansas, 85-53, last night.

Cole Aldrich had a career-high 23 points and also grabbed 11 rebounds in the Jayhawks' 27th straight home victory.

Brady Morningstar scored a career-best 21 points and Sherron Collins had 11 points and a career-high eight assists for Kansas (4-1).

Morningstar hit his first four three-point attempts as the Jayhawks went on a 34-3 tear in the first half and led by 31 points until Sargeant hit a 10-footer for the Eagles' third basket with 6:15 to go.

Coppin State (1-2) is playing its first 15 games away from home.

No. 20 VILLANOVA 64, TOWSON 47:: Once Villanova settled down, everything else fell into place. Especially in the second half. Scottie Reynolds scored 14 points, Dante Cunningham and Antonio Pena each had 12 and the Wildcats (5-0) overcame a sluggish start to defeat the Tigers (3-2) in the Philly Classic. "I think we just executed better," Villanova coach Jay Wright said. "We weren't really poised in the first half." Junior Hairston scored 11 for Towson, which had been off to its best start in nine years.
