Mason powers No. 2 Kansas to second-half surge over Sooners, 81-70

The Jayhawks (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) have won 15-straight games, while Oklahoma (6-9, 0-4) remains in search of its first conference victory a year advancing to the Final Four.

"I can’t read him," Self said of Mason, who Tuesday passed Wilt Chamberlain on KU’s all-time scoring list. "And if you think you can, you’re only kidding yourself. Because nobody can. He’s a unique guy. He’s stone-faced. He doesn’t show a lot of emotion. But you could tell there was something different about him in the second half."

"We talked in the huddle about how there were no nine-point plays," Jackson said. "We didn’t know how fast we were gonna come back, but we knew we were gonna do it."

For this KU basketball team, not shooting 3s is the bigger risk

The Jayhawks are at 42 percent, which is third nationally behind only UCLA and Kennesaw State. Through four Big 12 games, they’ve made 45 percent of their threes … with no other conference team shooting better than 39 percent.

"It's my fault and I got to do a better job at helping them in the game and executing," Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said.

(Mr. Ed says: In case you missed it, Bruce Weber (or the KSU bench?) got a T with like 5 seconds left in the game.  Tech hit the free throws, and KSU nailed a buzzer-beater to lose by just 1 point after leading the entire second half.  I haven't checked, but I'm guessing BOTC is either in full meltdown mode or full conspiracy mode.  Maybe both.)
