The Wildcats led by only seven points at halftime, but romped to a 92-50 win over UMES. Jamar Samuels had 12points in his return, and Thomas Gipson also scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Like the football team, Frank Martin's squad will take a break until Sunday.

Missouri topped its performance against Notre Dame with a 92-53 win over a ranked Cal team to win the CBE Classic in Kansas City. KU got a relatively easy win over UCLA to advance to the finals of the Maui Invitational, where it will face Duke.
