LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) Kansas gave itself a nice, easy path to the championship game of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational.

The fifth-ranked Jayhawks, who won their first-round game by a tournament-record 51 points, cruised past UCLA 92-73 on Tuesday night in the semifinals and will face No. 19 Vanderbilt in the title game Wednesday.

The Commodores weren't exactly tested in their two games, with a 37-point opening win and an 86-64 victory over Wake Forest in the semifinals.
