It’s the regular season finale for the the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks and they will have a chance to claim at least a share of the Big 12 regular season title this afternoon when hosting the No. 21 Texas Longhorns.
Kansas (24-6, 13-4 Big 12) narrowly avoided a third-straight loss on Thursday when it edged TCU in a 72-68 home victory. This was a tight, back-and-forth matchup for the duration of the game before the Jayhawks broke off a 7-0 run to establish some cushion late. They managed to hold off a last-minute comeback attempt by the Horned Frogs to hang on. Ochai Agbaji had 22 points in the win.
Texas (21-9, 10-7 Big 12) went down in its final home game on Monday, falling to Baylor 68-61. The Longhorns held a three-point lead at halftime but quickly fell behind in the second half and couldn’t quite catch back up with the Bears. Both Marcus Carr and Christian Bishop dropped 13 points each in the loss.
