SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Brady Morningstar scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting and Thomas Robinson collected 12 points and 14 rebounds as No. 1 seed Kansas advanced to the Elite Eight with a 77-57 victory over No. 12 seed Richmond on Friday.

Marcus Morris added 13 points and eight rebounds for the Jayhawks (35-2), who will play either Virginia Commonwealth or Florida State in the Southwest Regional final on Sunday.

The Jayhawks shot 52 percent (16 of 31) in the opening half to take a 41-22 lead into the break.

Richmond never got closer than 15 points in the second half, falling quietly in the school’s first appearance in a regional semifinal since 1988.
