Morningstar helps KU thump Nebraska 86-66

LINCOLN, Neb. | Kansas guard Brady Morningstar started in place of an injured Josh Selby and led the Jayhawks to a 86-66 victory at Nebraska with a game-high 19 points and six assists.

Selby missed today's game with a stress reaction in his right foot. X-rays came back negative for a stress fracture, which should be good news for KU.

Morningstar has been on fire since the game at Colorado Jan. 25, making 11 of 18 three-pointers (including five of seven on Saturday). He has now scored in double digits in three of the last four games. Against Nebraska, the Jayhawks followed his lead, making 54 percent (13 of 24) of their threes.

KU's last visit to the Bob Devaney Center as a Big 12 foe ended like most of them -- with Kansas fans singing the "Rock Chalk" chant.

Kansas is now 22-1 and 7-1 in the league as it heads into the first edition of the Border War against Missouri on Monday at Allen Fieldhouse.
