Monday's Top 25 Men's College Basketball Capsules

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Twin brothers Marcus and Markieff Morris each had double-doubles and No. 7 Kansas romped past Valparaiso 79-44 Monday night for the Jayhawks’ 61st consecutive home victory.

Marcus Morris, one inch shorter than his 6-foot-10 sibling, had 11 rebounds and 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting for the Jayhawks (2-0), who have launched their season with a pair of lopsided victories.

Markieff Morris, who had a double-double against Longwood in the season opener, added 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Valparaiso (1-1), picked fourth in the Horizon League, had one lead — at 2-1. Cory Johnson and Kevin Van Wijk each had 10 points for the Crusaders and Brandon Wood had nine.

No. 20 Georgetown 69, Tulane 53

WASHINGTON (AP) — Austin Freeman scored 23 points as No. 20 Georgetown built a big early lead then needed another run to put away Tulane in the Hoyas’ home opener.

Georgetown (2-0) opened a 32-12 lead with Freeman scoring 13 points in the first 13 minutes, including three 3-pointers. But the Hoyas went cold soon after, and the Green Wave (1-1) used a 15-4 run to close to 36-27 with 16:22 left in the second half.

Georgetown then turned up the defensive pressure and used a 17-3 run to take control of the game. Freeman delivered on a four-point play to push the lead to 40-27.

Clark finished with 17 points, 11 rebounds and five steals. He was playing after the death of his grandmother early Monday.

Kris Richard had 22 points and nine rebounds to lead Tulane.
