Jeff Withey scored 18 points, Ben McLemore added 14 and No. 9 Kansas routed TCU 74-48 on Saturday to avenge a stunning loss to the lowly Horned Frogs just over two weeks ago.

Perry Ellis and Travis Releford added 12 points each for the Jayhawks (23-4, 11-3 Big 12), who began the day tied with Kansas State for first place in the conference.

Kansas has won three straight since a rare three-game losing streak, one that included an embarrassing 62-55 loss to the Horned Frogs (10-17, 1-13) on Feb. 6. TCU still has not managed to beat another Big 12 team during its first season in the conference.
