Kansas pulls away from Michigan State

(TSX / STATS) -- TULSA, Okla. -- Kansas made it through the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament and picked up a head of steam in the process.

The No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, the Jayhawks gained an edge late in the first half against ninth-seeded Michigan State and raced past the Spartans late on the way to a 90-70 victory on Sunday at the BOK Center.

The Jayhawks (30-4) had plenty of support from their fans in Tulsa, and now they will move even closer to home as they advance to play fourth-seeded Purdue in a regional semifinal on Thursday in Kansas City, Mo.
