– Wright (12) and Jackson (10) both recorded double-figure rebounds. The last time a Kansas duo pulled double figure rebounds in the same game was Dec. 9, 2005 against Pepperdine when Sasha Kaun grabbed 12 along with C.J. Giles’ 10.
– Kansas scored eight fast break points, while holding Oral Roberts to two.
– Oral Roberts’ Marchello Vealy’s five first-half three-pointers are the most by a Kansas opponent since Gerry McNamara of Syracuse drained six in the first half of the national championship game on April 7, 2003. Vealy finished with seven three-pointers, the most by a KU opponent since Thomas Gardner of Missouri hit seven three-pointers on Jan. 16, 2006.

– Kansas’ two three-point field goals were the fewest by a Kansas team since KU made only two against Oklahoma on February 5, 2006.
