Kansas basketball: Baylor rematch, how to watch

Three Big 12 upsets shock college basketball on loaded Saturday slate

The loss dropped Kansas to 19-6 on the year and 8-4 in league play, while Baylor moved to 15-10 in its 2017-18 campaign with a 5-7 mark in the Big 12.

Here are five stats that stood out from a defeat that Kansas will have to find a way to put behind it quickly. Defensively, Kansas yields 70.1 points per game against the opposing teams.

Wright has appeared in just 27 games for the Grizzlies this season, averaging 5.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 13.6 minutes of action per game.

The Bears made 14 of their final 20 attempts from the floor. They came back to win that game 56-55.

Kansas coach Bill Self knows he's responsible for the impossibly high expectations of the Jayhawks' basketball program.

Speaking of easy points, KU didn't get any in transition.

Tenth-ranked Kansas travels to Waco, Texas to face Baylor in a key Big 12 matchup Saturday afternoon. 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.

Lecomte hit a pair of deep 3-pointers to fuel an 8-0 run as Baylor re-established a 10-point lead with 4:23 left. They are looking for their eighth straight regular-season title. That is well below his season average. Despite a lid being on the basket early, Kansas found itself in only in a four-point deficit by the midway point of the opening stanza, 15-11. The Jayhawks missed their first four shots and the Baylor lead swelled to 13 points on two occasions in the first two minutes after the restart. Unlike last year's KU team, which routinely climbed out of holes, this group hasn't been so fortunate. Kansas will then host West Virginia on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Jayhawks are 2-point road favorites to knock off the Bears after the game opened as a pick'em. He was the only Jayhawk to make more than one field goal in the first 20 minutes. "It gives every team an opportunity to control their own destiny from the standpoint if you win enough you're going to be in the tournament and have a chance to play in March".

Upon checking in, De Sousa started off positively enough, deflecting an inbound pass underneath the hoop.

Just another Saturday in the Big 12.

The stoppage allowed Self to re-insert Azubuike, and De Sousa checked out having played 28 seconds and contributed nothing statistically, other than a foul and a turnover.

"I would just think that the tougher teams - the teams that can execute out of timeouts, the teams that understand the importance of getting two or three stops in a row at game point - those are the teams that'll have the best chance to finish strong and win the league", he said.
