Mason, Jackson spark top-seeded Kansas past UC Davis, 100-62

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Josh Jackson insisted a season's worth of distractions wouldn't take away from his focus in his first, and likely last, NCAA Tournament.

The standout Kansas freshman proved true to his word in an opening-round 100-62 victory over UC Davis on Friday night, scoring 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting in his return from a one-game suspension for an accumulation of embarrassing incidents.

Jackson scored the first field goal for the Jayhawks (29-5) and 11 of their first 31 points after missing last week's Big 12 Conference Tournament. His hot start helped Kansas recover from missing its first four shots, and it helped the Jayhawks win their opening game of the tournament for an 11th straight year.
