Little and Taylor combined for 17-21 shooting with Taylor (pictured) scoring a game-high 21 points and Little 20. All 11 Jayhawks who suited up scored in the victory, with freshman forward Quintrell Thomas of St. Patrick of Elizabeth adding 11 points and sophomore center Cole Aldrich 10 on 5-of-5 shooting. Thomas led all rebounders with eight boards, while Aldrich and Little pulled down seven each.
The victory made KU 3-0 on its 2008 Canada exhibition tour.
“We played well tonight. I think we caught Ottawa on a bad night,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “It wasn’t the same team that played South Alabama (to wire) last night. They missed some shots. It was a good three games for us. Somebody told me McGill would be competitive but it’d be a game we could play a lot of guys. They played us great. Carleton is a team that could be competitive in a lot of leagues in the NCAA. And Ottawa has a good team, but didn’t shoot it tonight.”
