LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) – Andrew Wiggins’ layup with two seconds left lifted No. 8 Kansas to a 64-63 win over Texas Tech Tuesday night.
The freshman finished with 19 points and Joel Embiid added 18 to lead the Jayhawks (20-6, 11-2). The victory for Kansas gave them 20 wins for the 25th consecutive season and 11 or more conference wins for the 20th straight year.
Texas Tech’s Robert Turner sank two free throws with 16 seconds left to put the Red Raiders up 63-62, but Kansas brought the ball up and got it inside to Wiggins for the win.
Jordan Tolbert scored 16 points and Dejan Kravic added 13 to lead Texas Tech (13-13, 5-8).
