The Jayhawks, now 13-4 overall and 3-2 in conference play, shot a miserable 34 percent from the floor and 47 percent from the free throw line.

MCC managed to lead 36-30 at halftime and took a 41-30 lead 40 seconds into the second half. But then the cold shooting got the best of the Jayhawks.

“We played absolutely awful from start to finish,” said MCC Coach Dave Schlump. “We didn’t play with any energy, focus or enthusiasm. They played harder than we did and played like they wanted to win more than us. We let them hang around and they made us pay.”

MCC’s Eddie Tornes and Marcus Tumblin both scored 16 points and Aaron Sydnor chipped in 13 points and five assists.

The Jayhawks play at home again this Saturday at 3 p.m. and next Monday at 7:30 p.m.
