LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Sherron Collins scored 25 points and dished out key assists during an early 18-1 run, and No. 15 Kansas stretched its nation-leading home court streak to 40 in a row Sunday with a 90-65 victory over No. 11 Missouri.
Cole Aldrich had 19 points and 14 rebounds in a surprisingly lopsided win that puts Bill Self's young Jayhawks (24-5, 13-1 Big 12) on the cusp of a fifth straight Big 12 title and ninth in 13 years.
Picked fourth in the conference preseason poll after losing all five starters off their NCAA championship team, they're the first Kansas team to win 13 of their first 14 league games since the senior-laden 2001-02 squad finished 16-0.
Leo Lyons had 20 points for the Missouri (24-5, 11-3), which had won seven in a row and exceeded last year's victory total by eight games.
