PHOENIX -- Demetrius Walker scored a career-high 21 points as Grand Canyon throttled Western New Mexico 91-51 Saturday night.
Walker hit two straight 3-pointers to spark Grand Canyon (1-2) on a 22-4 run, opening a 33-15 lead with 3:41 left in the first half. The Antelopes led 37-23 at halftime.
The break didn't slow down Grand Canyon, which ripped the game open with a 27-4 run to start the half. Killian Larson added 18 points and 14 rebounds while Blake Davis scored 12 and grabbed a career-high 13 boards. Jeremy Adams pitched in a career-high 14 points.
The Mustangs, a Division II program, only made three field goals in the first ten minutes of the second half. They were held to an ice-cold 24 percent (13 of 54) shooting for the game. Steven Loucks led the team with 10 points.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
