Baylor knocks off No. 10 Kansas 80-64

The Bears are on an 11 game losing streak against the Jayhawks (their longest in the series), and are 4-30 against them all-time.

Baylor led for the final 26 minutes and didn't flinch when Kansas made a charge to get within a basket in the second half.

In the first meeting, the Jayhawks held Senior guard Manu Lecomte to just 10 points on 3-13 shooting and just 1-8 from beyond the arc.

As awry as Kansas looked offensively with Graham playing the entire way, it's kind of frightening to think about how poorly things would have gone had he come out of the game even for a minute or two in either half.

Kansas trailed by as many as 13 points early in the second half, but chipped away and then went on a 9-2 run to cut the margin to two.

Lecomte drained his first two threes of the game in deep catch-and-shoot fashion to extend the lead to 66-56 with under five minutes to play.

Once Baylor achieved a 10-point lead just before halftime you figured the Jayhawks might be in trouble. He was fouled in the lane by Ronnie Harrell Jr. after Harrell had made three straight free throws to give the Bluejays a one-point lead with 4.6 seconds left. Texas 6-9 forward Dylan Osetkowski is an inside-outside threat who is tied with Bamba for the Longhorns' scoring lead with 13.6 points per game. Against Baylor, Newman went 5 of 16, and hit 2 of his 10 3-pointers. On the offensive end, KU's shooting strokes again went cold.

Baylor has just as much at stake Saturday as Kansas.

As far as the Big 12 race is concerned, Saturday's result hinders Kansas' campaign to win a 14th consecutive regular-season title - dashing the Jayhawks a game back on first-place Texas Tech.

Guard Devonte' Graham posted 23 to lead Kansas (19-6, 8-4) and guard Malik Newman added 14.

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.

Ultimately, Kansas, who are 8-1 on road and neutral courts, are expected to leave Waco with a victory on Saturday, but the Bears shouldn't be overlooked. Kansas holds an all-time series lead with ISU, 180-64, which includes an 83-78 win on January 9 in Allen Fieldhouse. As Kansas celebrates 120 years of basketball in 2017-18, KU will recognize the 10-year anniversary of Kansas' 2008 NCAA National Championship and retire Cole Aldrich's jersey during the West Virginia contest.
