Ochai Agbaji makes first career start, goes for 24 points
The freshman, whose redshirt was removed just weeks ago on Jan. 8, found out he’d be starting over Lagerald Vick during a film session two or three days earlier, then put up career-highs with 24 points and seven rebounds. He also tallied two steals and a block, but even after his stellar night, the Jayhawks fell to 1-5 on the road, presenting a problem Agbaji and the Jayhawks still need to handle.

Media praises Texas, rakes Kansas for Longhorn win
But Tuesday, Texas checked its closet and found that the team that has thrown such a scare into the Longhorns — Kansas was 7-0 against Smart at Texas — was really just a few shirts that looked like a monster because they were hanging at a weird angle. Texas took the lead early, then kept it, in a 73-63 victory.
The two plays that ended Kansas' hope of a comeback vs. Texas
Self’s No. 11 Jayhawks have had offensive issues all season. The Jayhawks have struggled on the road. Those aspects of Tuesday’s 73-63 road loss were nothing new. But this was different. For the first time in recent memory, the Jayhawks were succeeding in a now-or-never situation. The margin for error was gone. They were pressing, they needed to force stops and they needed to steal extra possessions. It was working.
