LAWRENCE, Kan. — Darrell Arthur had 17 points and fourth-ranked Kansas overwhelmed Northern Arizona in the first half for an 87-46 victory Wednesday night in the Jayhawks’ 600th win in the 52-year history of Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas poured it on from the start, scoring the first 12 points and building it to a 29-4 lead with 71/2 minutes left. The Jayhawks shot 61 percent and held Northern Arizona without a double-figures scorer, getting an easy victory before facing Arizona on Sunday in what should be their first real test of the season.

The Lumberjacks didn’t score until Zarko Comagic hit a layup at 13:22 and barely cracked double figures for the half, shooting 4-for-24 to trail 44-10.

No. 5 Georgetown 57, Ball State 48: At Muncie, Ind., Roy Hibbert scored 16 points and had seven rebounds, and Georgetown made seven 3-pointers in a win over outmanned Ball State. The Cardinals (0-3) were led by Peyton Stovall with 16 points.

No. 24 Clemson 74, Presbyterian 57: At Clemson, S.C., K.C. Rivers scored 18 points, Cliff Hammonds added 14 and Clemson improved to 17-0 in the last three Novembers with a victory over Presbyterian. The Tigers (4-0) are 22-1 in November during coach Oliver Purnell’s five seasons.

Louisville 68, UNLV 48: At Las Vegas, Earl Clark had 16 points and 12 rebounds and Jerry Smith added 14 points to lead No. 6 Louisville past UNLV. Louisville (3-0), in town early for the Las Vegas Invitational on Friday and Saturday, will play formidable BYU in the semifinals and could meet No. 1 North Carolina in the finals.

Ohio State 79, No. 21 Syracuse 65: At New York, freshman Kosta Koufos scored a career-high 24 points to help Ohio State beat No. 21 Syracuse 79-65 in the NIT Season Tip-Off semifinals. The Buckeyes (3-0) will play No. 16 Texas A&M on Friday night in the championship game. The Aggies beat Washington 77-63 in the other semifinal.

No. 13 Duke 77, No. 11 Marquette 73: At Lahana, Hawaii, freshman forward Kyle Singler scored 25 points, including the clinching free throws with 13 seconds to play, and the 13th-ranked Blue Devils beat No. 11 Marquette to claim their fourth EA Sports Maui Invitational championship. Duke (5-0) won the title here in 1992, 1997 and 2001.

Arizona 88, Adams State 64: At Tucson, Ariz., Jordan Hill had a career-high 17 points as Arizona beat Adams State. The Wildcats (3-1) struggled with the Division II Grizzlies until they relied on Hill’s 11 points after the intermission.
