It’s been somewhat of a down year for the Kansas Jayhawks (23-8, 12-6), ranked ‘just’ 17th in the nation. But tournament season is what counts most and it begins with the Big-12 tournament and their opening match with the Texas Longhorns (16-15, 8-10).

Texas beat Kansas the last time these teams met back on January 29th. Kansas is 7-3 since then with two of the losses coming against non-ranked teams, Kansas State and Oklahoma. They won three of their last four including a 78-70 win over Baylor last time out.

Texas has been streaky all season including an early season win over North Carolina. But they are trending downwards lately, losers of four of their last five. Their offense has deserted them at key times as evidenced by their 69-56 loss to TCU last time out.

Kansas averaged 75.6 PPG and allowed 70.1 PPG

Texas averaged 71.2 PPG and allowed 67.1 PPG
