Kansas Storms Past Texas

Associated Press - February 22, 2014 11:32 pm

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points, Joel Embiid briefly flirted with a triple-double and No. 8 Kansas trounced No. 19 Texas 85-54 Saturday night to seize control of the Big 12.

Embiid finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and six blocks for the Jayhawks (21-6, 12-2), who lead the league race by three games with four to play. Kansas can wrap up at least a share of its 10th straight title when Oklahoma visits Allen Fieldhouse on Monday night.

Kansas also exacted a little revenge for a lopsided loss to the Longhorns (20-7, 9-5) in Austin, using a 32-5 run over a long stretch of the first half to put the game away early.

It was the Jayhawks’ fifth win in the last six meetings and easily the most impressive.
