LAWRENCE, Kan. - Mario Chalmers scored 18 points to lead six Kansas players in double figures and the sixth-ranked Jayhawks routed Iowa State 89-52 on Saturday.
Darrell Arthur added 15 points and 11 rebounds and Julian Wright had 12 points for the Jayhawks, who led by as many as 41 early in the second half and swept the season series with Iowa State for the second straight year.
Kansas (25-4, 12-2 Big 12) remained tied with No. 8 Texas A&M for the Big 12 lead with two games left, at Oklahoma on Monday night and at home next Saturday against No. 19 Texas. The Aggies' last two games are at Texas and home against Missouri.
Iowa State (14-14, 5-9) made only five of 28 shots while falling behind 41-15 at halftime and dropped to 7-99 all-time against ranked teams on the road.
At home against Kansas on Jan. 13, Iowa State lost by only four points in overtime. But this time the overmatched Cyclones failed even to get someone in double-figure scoring. Dodie Dunson had eight points while Corey McIntosh, Rahshon Clark and Mike Taylor all had seven.
The Cyclones wound up 18-for-55 (33 percent), failing to shoot above 40 percent for the 14th time in league games.
The Jayhawks, the second-leading rebounding team in the Big 12, dominated Iowa State on the boards 47-30 while shooting 52 percent.
