ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tyshawn Taylor came out of his slump in a big way, scoring 22 points to lead Kansas to an 80-67 victory over North Carolina on Saturday that returned the Jayhawks to the Final Four for the first time since winning it all in 2008.

Four other Kansas players finished in double figures as the Jayhawks (31-6) scored the last 12 points of the game. Player of the year candidate Thomas Robinson had 18 and nine rebounds for the second-seeded Jayhawks, who will face Ohio State in the Final Four on Saturday night.

James Michael McAdoo scored 15 for the Tar Heels, who played better without star point guard Kendall Marshall. But top-seeded North Carolina (32-6) couldn’t overcome a 5:46 field goal drought to end the game.
