KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas Jayhawks fell just short of a second straight Big 12 men’s basketball Tournament Championship.
Texas beat the Jayhawks 76-56 to win the Big 12 Tournament title.

Texas pulled away early in the second half and kept the pedal on their scoring affair throughout the rest of the game, cruising to a win.
It is the Longhorns’ second win over the Jayhawks in eight days.
Kansas is a projected number-one seed heading into the NCAA Tournament. They were a projected number-one overall seed, but this loss makes those predictions doubtful.
