LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Wayne Selden and Perry Ellis had 13 points apiece, and No. 5 Kansas beat Fort Hays State 92-75 in an exhibition game Tuesday night.

Jamari Traylor added 11 points for the Jayhawks, who open the regular season Friday against Louisiana-Monroe before playing No. 4 Duke next week.

Dwayne Brunson scored 15 points for the Tigers, a Division II program picked to win its conference. Craig Nicholson added 14.

Kansas broke the game open with a 28-7 run in the middle of the first half. Eight different Jayhawks scored during the run, highlighted by fast-break layups from Frank Mason and Tarik Black.

Highly touted freshman Andrew Wiggins, who had an up-and-down opener last week, had 10 points for the Jayhawks.
