Overmatched Howard loses 89-34 at No. 17 Kansas

AP reports: LAWRENCE, Kan. - Howard knew what it was getting into when it scheduled a two-game swing through the Sunflower State. It can only hope to fare better against Kansas State than it did at No. 17 Kansas.

Prince Okoroh had seven points and six rebounds to lead the Bison, who fell 89-34 to the Jayhawks on Thursday night. Howard watched as the bigger, stronger team from the Big 12 raced out to a double-digit lead in the opening minutes and never looked back as it prepped for conference play.

"We got our butts kicked," Howard coach Kevin Nickelberry said.
