Marcus and Markieff Morris combined for 31 points as Kansas found its shooting touch in the second half of a 72-53 win over Boston University on Friday night.

The win was the first NCAA tournament game for the Jayhawks since being sent home by Northern Iowa in the second round last season.

They appeared to still be feeling some of the aftereffects of that loss in the first half against the Terriers. Kansas (33-2) led just 33-29 at halftime and shot 42 percent. The Jayhawks found their touch in the second, hitting 62 percent of their shots and pulling away while avoiding last season's heartbreak and becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed.

John Holland led Boston (21-14) with 19 points, with 15 coming in the first half. The loss snaps the Terriers' 11-game winning streak.
