No. 7 Kansas beat down UAB in the opening round of the CBE Classic. The Jayhawks were up 23-3 at one point, and while the Blazers found back to make the score respectable, the outcome was never in doubt.

The final score was 83-61.

Get out of the way before you get hurt! Josh Jackson with the play of the night!! #kubball #jayhawks
