Arthur reached double-figure points for the 14th time in 15 games, while Kaun scored in double-digits for the first time in six games and was one point shy of his season high.

KU forced 13 Loyola turnovers in the first half and turned those into 20 points. Meanwhile the home team turned the ball over just five times in the half and 12 in the game.
Arthur scored 12 of KU's first 22 points in the game, including a stretch with 10 of KU's 11 points in the early part of the half. Collins and Kahn took over the rest of the way scoring six and five of KU's final 19 points of the half respectively.
