KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Perry Ellis had 20 points, Devonte Graham added 14 points and eight assists, and top-ranked Kansas held on through a shaky finish to beat No. 22 Baylor 70-66 in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals Friday night.

Wayne Selden Jr. dunked his way to 11 points for the Jayhawks (29-4), who muddled through an ugly first half before eventually avenging their loss to the Bears (22-11) in last year’s semifinals.

Kansas will play sixth-ranked Oklahoma or No. 9 West Virginia for the title Saturday night.
