Lawrence, KS (Sports Network) - Jeff Withey recorded the second triple-double in Kansas history and the No. 10 Jayhawks held off the San Jose State Spartans, 70-57, at Allen Fieldhouse.
Withey totaled 16 points, 12 rebounds and a school-record 12 blocks for the Jayhawks (5-1), who were coming off a CBE Hall of Fame Classic title. Travis Releford, Elijah Johnson and Ben McLemore each netted 13 points in the win.
Kansas appeared to pull away with an 18-0 run in the early stages of the second half, but made just two field goals in the final 11 1/2 minutes as the Spartans inched closer.
James Kinney scored 17 of his 30 points during Kansas' drought to turn a 24- point deficit into a single-digit affair, but it wasn't enough as San Jose State (2-3) had a two-game winning streak snapped.
