The Kansas Jayhawks men’s basketball program is in great shape to win their 10th consecutive Big 12 Title. Kansas squeaked by Texas Tech in Lubbock thanks to stellar play by freshman stars Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. They were the only Jayhawks to score in double figures, grabbing half of the team’s rebounds and blocking the only shots of the game for Kansas. KU extended their Big 12 lead on Texas by a game with the Longhorns falling to Iowa State.
This sets up a big match-up this weekend between the 1st and 2nd place teams in the Big 12. Texas was able to handle the Jayhawks just 3 weeks ago when the game was played at Frank Erwin Special Events Center in Austin, Texas. This time the game will be played in Allen Fieldhouse where KU is rarely beat. If the Jayhawks are able to beat the Longhorns, that would give them at least a 3 game lead on everybody in the Big 12 with only 4 games remaining. A KU win would surely secure their 10th straight Big 12 title. But, if Texas is able to come up to Kansas and upset them on their home court, the Big 12 race is back on. That would put Texas only one game back on Kansas with two wins against them in their back pocket. Now if both teams end up tied at the end of the regular season, KU would still be considered Co-Champs and continue their Big 12 run. But Texas would get the #1 seed in the Big 12 tournament. So the chances of KU not continuing their Big 12 streak is unlikely at this time but a Texas win this weekend would definitely keep the Jayhawk fans nervous a little longer.
