K-State's Rally Falls Short at No. 18/18 Texas Tech, 74-58

West Virginia and Texas Tech have separated themselves from the rest of the league. We didn't do that.

What is it that makes Texas Tech tick, though? Texas Tech desperately needs Vasher to be a superstar in 2018. "When you have to make shots to play well because you are a pretty team or a finesse team, that's a formula for getting beat when you play against tough teams".

From the Kansas perspective, this might be the worst team Bill Self has had during his time in Lawrence.

As one would expect, 15th-year KU coach Bill Self has some ideas about what his players must do to extend the program's run of Big 12 dominance and set a new NCAA record.

What they were dealing with Saturday night was a team that simply couldn't hang with TCU's big men.

Fast forward, and Tech's success ranks with the biggest stories in the Big 12 season, along with the all-world performance of Oklahoma freshman Trae Young.

After the win over Kansas, Beard suggested the only edge that his team might have on the Jayhawks is the presence of a Whataburger in Lubbock. No one has filled those shoes this season.

Texas coach Shaka Smart, who fell to 0-5 against KU as Longhorns coach (he was 1-0 vs. KU at VCU), said of three-pointers: "We always say to our team, 'They're not going to beat us with those".

"So there's a lot of things we've got to improve on in that area". There are usually multiple pros on a Kansas team. He leads Tech in scoring (16.5 ppg) and assists (3.6 apg). Who's the best pro prospect that Kansas has right now? On those attempts TCU shoots 65.4% (70th in the country). Kansas fans hope that Self will soon have two more front court players. Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe has played single-digit minutes in all but one game he has been eligible. "With him missing in the game, Tulane just sat their big man in the paint and clogged the paint for us". Kansas is currently tied with UCLA for most consecutive league titles but the Bruins' baker's dozen was accomplished in an eight-team league (14 conference games) and at a time when The Wizard's rule was absolute. It's not God-given talent.

Seton Hall at Butler: The Big East feels just a little bit more up for grabs after Butler once again pulled a Butler and knocked off No. 1 Villanova last Saturday. Or perhaps back to the 2014-15 season, when several Big 12 teams seemed primed to steal the Big 12 crown: A Buddy Hield-led Oklahoma team, a frenetic West Virginia team, an Iowa State team with Georges Niang and Monte Morris. Through 14 games, Kansas' opponents have connected on 159 of 230 free throws, visiting the charity stripe 16.42 times per game, while the Jayhawks are 133 for 180 on the season. "It was TCU before that". The Horned Frogs held off Baylor 81-78 in overtime on Tuesday.

Each of the last two years, just after the calendar has flipped, Your Veteran Scribe has written a column (for a different outlet) predicting that Kansas' streak of winning Big 12 Conference regular-season titles would end.

The Big 12 is great this year. The following season, they buried 601 of 843 free throws (15.8 for 22.1 per game).

No one had the winning ticket last night for Mega Millions and that jackpot has grown to $418 million with a cash option value of $261 million.

Kansas has been tested before during the streak. Luckily, the squad managed a tight comeback win over Texas, which saved Kliff Kingsbury's job. "He's one of the best coaches in our game and he has really good players".
