Baylor pulls off 80-64 upset over No. 10 Kansas

Baylor pulls off 80-64 upset over No. 10 Kansas

The Sooners still have to go to Texas Tech, Kansas and Baylor, meaning there's a legitimate chance they finish.500 in the Big 12, with 12 losses heading into Selection Sunday (assuming they don't win the Big 12 tournament). "You have to beat them. But at least from an intangible standpoint, give us some stuff". In the previous three matchups, the Bears had made more field goals than the Jayhawks, but allowed them to shoot 81 free throw attempts over the last three games. The Baylor Bears are averaging 77.1 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 69.4 points on 41.2 percent shooting.

Kansas has experienced how evenly matched the Big 12 is this season, having lost to seventh-place Oklahoma State last Saturday.

For Baylor to get in the 18-20-win range, it figures it has to win some games against ranked teams and the opportunities will be there. They have been fortunate on the road. "So like Manu and Coach (Drew) said, we needed to have a lead by 10 over the last three minutes".

The Baylor Bears need a statement win after losing six of their last nine games. The Bears took a ten point lead at the half and did not let up. Then he did it again as he buried a long trey from past the top of the arc to open up a 66-56 lead with 4:23 remaining. Bamba made it worse by swiping at Robinson in frustration on a foul call as the TCU player went up for a shot, leading to some shoving.

It was a cold shooting start for the Jayhawks, who were held to their second-lowest field goal percentage of the season, tallying just two field goals in the first eight minutes.

"I've been in other leagues that have been called the best league, maybe in history".

"Those were hard shots at the end of the shot clock against a zone", Self said. "They were just clutch plays". "That's just how it's got to be".

Graham, who scored a game-high 23 points, nailed a 3-pointer to cut Baylor's lead to 72-62. Lual-Acuil Jr. leads in rebounds with 9.3 while Lecomte tops in assists with 3.4 per game.

Fans from the Bear Pit ran on to the court to help the team celebrate after the big win.

In the first matchup between these schools, Kansas picked up a 70-67 win, overcoming a six-point deficit late in the game and scoring the final nine points.

Baylor: The Lady Bears continue to roll in the Big 12, and are 13-0 in conference play for the fourth time in seven years.

Just another Saturday in the Big 12. "It's always going to be something you think about, just living in the world we live in today, social media, TV". It doesn't have anything to do with making shots. Kansas has won the regular season Big 12 title going back 13 years and this could be the year they finally stumble.
