LION KINGS...? The record for the most lopsided loss in Texas Tech history stood for less than a week. Maybe Bob Knight knew when to leave.

Russell Robinson scored 15 points and No. 5 Kansas played everybody wearing a uniform in a 109-51 thrashing of the Red Raiders on Monday night.
The 58-point margin topped the 44-point pounding at Texas A&M last Wednesday that had gone into the record book as Tech’s worst loss ever.

In between the two world class butt-whippins, Tech beat then-No. 5 Texas 83-80, halting the Longhorns’ eight-game winning streak.

“I feel like someone put a meat necklace around my neck and threw me into a lion’s den,” said rookie coach Pat Knight, who succeeded his father, as head coach nine games ago.
