LAWRENCE — Wayne Selden and Perry Ellis had 13 points apiece, and No. 5 Kansas beat Fort Hays State 92-75 in an exhibition game Tuesday night.

Kansas broke the game open with a 28-7 run in the middle of the first half. Eight different Jayhawks scored during the run, highlighted by fast-break layups from Frank Mason and Tarik Black.
