– Kansas wore crimson uniforms for the first time since the Alcorn State game last season (Dec. 2).
– In Kansas’ two exhibition wins this season, the team shot 67-for-75 from the free throw line (89.3 percent), including 35-for-40 Tuesday against Emporia State. The 35 free throws made would be the most by a Jayhawk team since Feb. 9, 2008, when the team recorded 36 in a game against Baylor.
– Sophomore G Travis Releford scored 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting from the field. Both his point total and field goals would have been career highs, had this been a regular season game.
– KU’s 90 points were the fewest in an exhibition game since it scored 84 against Carleton University in an 84-83 win on Aug. 30, 2008.
– Freshman G Niko Roberts hit two free throws at the end of the game, which would have been his first points as a Jayhawk.
– Junior G Tyshawn Taylor had six assists, which would have been his best total since he recorded six against Missouri in last season’s finale.
– Sophomore G Mario Little would have tied career highs in assists (3) and steals (3).
– Sophomore F Thomas Robinson would have recorded his second career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds against Emporia State.
– Robinson also had four blocked shots, which would have matched a career high.
– Junior F Marcus Morris was perfect from the free throw line for the second-straight game, making him 15-of-15 from the charity stripe during the preseason.
– KU gave up just five offensive rebounds, which would have been the fewest by a Jayhawk opponent since Feb. 21, 2009 when Nebraska had four.
