Lawrence, Kan. • Thomas Robinson posted career-bests with 30 points and 21 rebounds, helping NO. 17 Kansas overcome a sluggish start and beat North Dakota 84-58 on Saturday in its final nonconference game.

North Dakota (5-8) simply had no answer for the muscular 6-foo-10 Robinson. With 12 points and 10 rebounds, the junior had socked away his Big 12-leading ninth double-double by halftime. His monster game included two steals and four assists as the Jayhawks (10-3) won their 55th straight nonconference home game.

An 11-4 run ending the first half gave the Jayhawks a 37-21 halftime lead. Robinson got the second half started by stealing a pass and feeding Travis Releford on a fast break three-point play. Robinson capped a 14-6 run with a hook shot and a one-handed dunk off a fastbreak pass from Releford for a 51-30 lead.

Troy Huff had 16 points for the Fighting Sioux, who fell to 0-7 away from home.
