Embiid sets record

Former Kansas center Eric Chenowith was in the building on Saturday night. His timing could not have been better — or worse. KU freshman center Joel Embiid finished with six blocked shots, surpassing Chenowith’s KU freshman record of 62 blocks. Embiid now has 68 blocks on the season. He also finished with 13 points and seven rebounds in Kansas’ 85-54 victory over Texas.

“It was a great accomplishment for me,” Embiid said.

Kansas coach Bill Self was hopeful that Embiid’s minutes on Saturday — he played just 21 in the blowout — would allow him to be more healthy for Monday’s game against Oklahoma.

Worth noting

KU freshman point guard Frank Mason finished with 14 points on six-of-seven shooting, spurring a transition attack that dominated Texas. The Jayhawks outscored the Longhorns 26-0 in fast-break points. “You look at the fast-break points, that was a big deal right there,” Self said. “We blocked shots or had steals and long rebounds that led to baskets. He kind of spear-headed that.”… Kansas’ 31-point victory was the largest in the all-time series with Texas. The Jayhawks also won 12 conference games for the 14th straight season, thought to be the longest such streak in the country.
