The former Oral Roberts, Tulsa and Illinois coach is 394-84 with the Jayhawks, and 212-9 at Allen Fieldhouse.Of course, their game against UMKC (6-4) was essentially over the moment the contract was signed.LaVell Boyd had 17 points for the Roos, who have never beaten Kansas in seven tries.No. 14 VIRGINIA 76, EAST CAROLINA 53CHARLOOTTESVILLE, Va.
