The Jayhawks (24-4, 12-3 Big 12), now just one win away from its 12th straight Big 12 regular-season title, exchanged 17 lead changes with Baylor (20-8, 9-6) before taking control of the game with an 10-2 run.
The resilient squad’s never-say-die attitude — KU (24-4, 12-3) trailed by eight points with 14:38 to play against a Baylor (20-8, 9-6) squad that was dominating the backboards — has resulted in seven straight victories in conference action, and counting the ‘W’ against Kentucky, eight in a row overall.
"It’s sad to say, but they probably just wanted it more than we did," said BU’s Taurean Prince, who had 12 points and three boards. "That is what it seemed like. Their guys were flying in and, like coach said, we were not boxing out and doing our jobs. That’s on us."
When crunch time came, the Jayhawks did what they've done countless times en route to 11 consecutive regular season Big 12 titles and counting. A win Saturday over Texas Tech at Allen Fieldhouse would clinch no worse than a tie and a 12th straight title won or shared.
When the 12th straight Big 12 title looked like a longshot, the Jayhawks caught fire and have been playing like Kansas basketball should be played. So what changed?
In other words, sure, it's mathematically possible the Jayhawks will yield their two-game stake atop the league standings. Three games left, two-game lead, carry the one -- the math isn't hard. Picturing it is much harder, particularly after Tuesday night's performance.

The hearing aids were valued at $6,000, and the walker was valued at $100, Anguiano said, making the total estimated loss $6,100.
A program that goes 0-12 does not very often get five assistants raided from it the very next offseason. And the fact that that just happened to Beaty is a testament to his ability to hire quality coaches in the first place.
The Jayhawks' (2-1) offensive struggles continued after stranding 12 men on base. However, the formation of a bullpen that was lacking in 2015 took the game on its shoulders and pitched four scoreless frames for the win.
Kansas women's tennis continued to climb the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) charts, notching a new program-high No. 23 ranking as announced by the ITA Tuesday. The ranking is the highest Kansas (6-0, 0-0 Big 12) has been in ITA's weekly list in the program's history.
"My goal this year is to play for the College National Team and then (after college) to go pro," she (Kelsie Payne) said. "If one day I could play in the Olympics that would be awesome."

Texas Tech hired Tubby Smith a week after Minnesota fired Tubby Smith. At first, it seemed like a questionable decision. But it's hard to question it now that Smith has the Red Raiders on the verge of a rare appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
As more cities look to add bowl games to an already inflated system, the NCAA realizes it needs to fix the 'broken' postseason schedule. (Mr. Ed says: I have an idea. How about a playoff? You know, like every other level of college football has.)

I can't imagine the hoverboard helps much when the umpire has to move around quickly to get different angles on the play, but who knows. Isn't technology wonderful?
