The Kansas Jayhawks have now won two straight games since being knocked out of the latest AP Top-25 Poll for the first time in 12 years.
Their victory against the Iowa State Cyclones on Thursday night was extremely one-sided.
The Jayhawks got production from every position on the court. They had four starters score over 12 points, and all 13 available players earned playing time.
To defeat the Cyclones again on Saturday night, the Kansas Jayhawks will need to avoid becoming complacent as they are a far better team.

Iowa State Cyclones Preview
The Iowa State Cyclones continue to look for answers as they are now 0-10 in the Big 12.
One of their biggest problems is their ability to score points. The Cyclones are ranked 145th in offensive efficiency, scoring just 103.4 points per 100 possessions, via Kenpom.com.
It is clear that the Iowa State Cyclones' morale is low at this point in the season. However, to have a chance at earning their first win in conference play, they are going to need to form an entirely new game plan and focus on the fundamentals.
Key Player - Rasir Bolton
Rasir Bolton is a key player for the Iowa State Cyclones. The junior guard leads his team in every major statical category, with 16.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
Bolton was held to his lowest scoring total in the new year on Thursday night, finishing with just nine points.
For the Iowa State Cyclones to have a chance at knocking off the Kansas Jayhawks, Rasir Bolton will need to be the best player on the court and score more than his season average.
