Freshman Xavier Henry had 15 points and Marcus Morris had a big homecoming with 13 as No. 1 Kansas beat No. 18 Temple 84-52 on Saturday, snapping the Owls' seven-game winning streak.

Sherron Collins scored 14 points for the Jayhawks (13-0), who have won nine games this season by at least 25 points. Their lead reached that in this one with 9:25 to go when Marcus Morris' layup made it 60-35.

Ryan Brooks and Juan Fernandez both had 11 points for the Owls (11-3), who already had a top-five win this season over then-No. 3 Villanova 75-65 on Dec. 13. They never really had a chance against No. 1.

The Jayhawks finished 30 of 55 from the field (54.5 percent), a number that reflected their dominance inside, considering Temple's opponents were shooting 36.4 percent entering the game.
