Kansas Prevails Over Texas Tech in Ugly Game

Sherron Collins had 19, despite spending half the game on the pine with foul trouble. (Kansas City Star)

In a game that at times was very rough, and other times was over officiated Kansas prevailed 80-68. Basically every time it appeared that Texas Tech was going to take a lead or extend a lead, the Jayhawks had a run. They would turn Tech over for a couple trips and make baskets. KU ended Tech chances after they drew to within 2 late in the second half with a 12 point run. Kansas was pretty balanced--five KU players in double figures--Sherron Collins, even though saddled with foul trouble all game, led scorers with 19 points. Cole Aldrich had 18 rebounds. So Kansas continues on in the Big 12 tournament, and will play the winner of the Nebraska-Texas A&M game. In fact, this game is going on now--in fact is almost over--with Texas A&M ahead 62-58 with about a minute to go.

0:12 seconds left--Texas A&M has a 6 point lead and is shooting free throws--looks like the Aggies will be KU's semifinal opponent.
