KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Hunter Dickinson had 22 points and 13 rebounds, and second-ranked Kansas routed Wichita State 86-67 in the first matchup between the in-state rivals in nearly nine years.

Kevin McCullar Jr. scored 20 points and Elmarko Jackson added a career-best 12 for the Jayhawks (12-1), who have won 25 straight games in December.

Dalen Ridgnal scored 13 points for the Shockers (8-5), who also lost to Kansas State at T-Mobile Center last week.

Kansas and Wichita State first played in 1908, but, despite being separated by just 161 miles, the schools have met only 16 times over the years, including a pair of NCAA Tournament games. The most recent meeting was in 2015, when the Shockers beat the Jayhawks in a Midwest Regional game in Omaha, Nebraska.

In this one, the Jayhawks led by as much as 28 in the second half before cruising to the finish.
