Omaha, NE (Sports Network) - Thomas Robinson had 16 points and 13 rebounds and Kansas avoided becoming the third No. 2 seed to fall Friday after rolling to a 65-50 victory over Detroit in the NCAA Tournament.
Earlier, Norfolk State upset Missouri in Omaha and Lehigh knocked off Duke in Greensboro -- a pair of shockers that marked the first time two second-seeded teams had lost to 15 seeds in the same year of the NCAAs.
Kansas, seeded second behind North Carolina in the Midwest Region, avoided the same fate after using a 34-7 run spanning halftime to take a 25-point lead.
The Jayhawks (28-6) moved on to face 10th-seeded Purdue, which topped Saint Mary's earlier Friday.
