Recap: Kansas vs. Washington St

Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Travis Releford scored a game-high 17 points as No. 12 Kansas rolled over Washington State, 78-41, in the semifinals of the Edward Jones CBE Hall of Fame Classic at the Sprint Center.

Perry Ellis added 12 points and Ben McLemore netted 11 for the Jayhawks (3-1), who will face St. Louis in the final on Tuesday.

Brock Motum was the lone member of the Cougars (2-2) to score in double digits with 14 as Washington State dropped its second straight game.

Kansas opened the game with a 10-2 run capped by a McLemore 3-pointer and never looked back in the wire-to-wire victory.
