Ben McLemore had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 7 Kansas was tested by Division II power Washburn before easing to a 62-50 exhibition victory Monday night.

Elijah Johnson added 13 points and freshman Perry Ellis had 10 for the Jayhawks, who turned the ball over 24 times in their final tuneup before they open their regular season Friday night against Southeast Missouri State.

After that is a date with No. 14 Michigan State on Nov. 13.

Kansas has a long way to go before that early season showdown in Atlanta.

Despite returning three starters from the team that pushed Kentucky to the limit in last season's national championship game, the Jayhawks have appeared ragged and unpolished through their first two exhibition games against small, in-state schools Emporia State and Washburn.
