Notebook: Kansas dominated by Texas Tech in Allen Fieldhouse

So no one told you life was gonna be this way

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Several streaks were broken last night by Texas Tech in Allen Fieldhouse, as the Red Raiders dominated the Jayhawks from start to finish.

The sun did rise this morning, in case you were wondering, and it is scheduled to do so again tomorrow.

Chris Beard, Tech’s coach, says he expected his team to have a chance to win, but did not think they would beat Kansas on its home floor.

Bill Self bemoaned his team’s lack of competitiveness, saying the Jayhawks “weren’t even in the game.”

Conversely, Texas Tech played the game they had to play in order to get the W.

Jesse Newell says KU’s problem is a vicious circle: The short bench means they have to play small, playing small means they have to play with constant energy, constant energy means they need frequent breathers, and the short bench means there aren’t any breaks.

Billy Preston has sat out all 14 regular season games for Kansas, and his mom went to Twitter last night on his behalf.

Kansas’ Big 12 streak seems more vulnerable than ever.

The Big 12 is clearly the toughest conference in the country this year. Despite that, Matt Norlander at CBSSports says bet against the Jayhawks at your own peril.
