Deep run ≠ national title, pardner!

Not worried about KU playing them or not. Just saying I love their team. Tough, talented, experienced & capable of getting red hot. Tough out.

Way too early bracket warning: I’m gonna have a hard time keeping BYU from making a deep run in my bracket. Loved em when I saw em in Maui & they’ve just gotten better. was gonna be No. 1 tomorrow anyway, but BYU’s win over Gonzaga last night guarantees it.

A Butler 3 at the buzzer falls short and wins it. 64-61. Kansas improves to 24-3 overall and 13-1 Big 12. Baylor falls to 24-2 and 13-1. What a game. KU likely the new No. 1 on Monday. KU led for 35:46 of this game.

Moss with two CLUTCH free throws. Baylor still alive, but can breathe a little. Self usually doesn't foul here, up 3, unless it gets under 5 seconds or so. So don't expect it. And I'd bet on Baylor going to get a quick 2. Kansas 64, Baylor 61. :07.9 to play

I'd make sure that Garrett was always the guy inbounding in those situations. Ochai's done that before and now Baylor's still alive. leads 62-61 with 16.2 seconds to play. Kansas ball.

That was 3 different players in a row who stepped to the FT line and missed the front end of a one-and-one. Fatigue is real, man. Wow. Dotson drilled these and leads 62-55 with 32.3 seconds to play.

Well said. Numbers won't quite be there to win it, but they're there today...

Dok's 17 boards tie a career-high. One more is his new mark. In the biggest game of his senior season. Incredible.

Dok with another offensive rebound and put-back... leads 60-53. Huge play and moment for Kansas there. He's up to 23 points and 17 rebounds.

Dok blocked that with HIS LEFT... Unreal play.

Baylor's +6 from 3-point range and +5 at the FT line... That's kept them in it and they have a shot to tie on this possession. leads 56-53, 3:37 2H
