AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Cliff Alexander had 15 points and nine rebounds, and No. 11 Kansas beat No. 17 Texas 75-62 on Saturday for a key road win in the rugged Big 12.

The Jayhawks easily handled Texas’ size advantage inside and got timely 3-point shooting to break the game open in the second half. Brannen Greene made four 3-pointers and four Jayhawks scored in double figures. Kansas (16-3, 5-1) was nearly flawless with the ball, committing just three turnovers.

Isaiah Taylor scored 23 for Texas (15-4, 3-3) in his best game since returning from a long layoff with a broken wrist. But Texas showed little offensive flair beyond Taylor’s scoring. Taylor had just one assist as Texas’ big frontcourt all but disappeared for long stretches.

The loss is a tough blow to Texas’ conference title hopes, which could all but end if the Longhorns lose at No. 9 Iowa State on Monday night.
