Jayhawks lose at home to Baylor

For much of the first half this was a neck and neck game, but Baylor took over the last several minutes. Devon Dotson appeared to tweak his hip on a fast break dunk, and it looked to be causing him more pain as the game went on. Baylor started getting some easy buckets and took a 37-24 advantage into the locker room, the biggest deficit Kansas had faced this year.

Dotson would end up back in the locker room, limping noticeably, just 30 seconds into the second half. Though things looked dire at that point, KU rallied and cut the lead down to five several times. Dotson would return at the 8:53 mark, but Baylor had stretched the lead back out to ten by that point.

Unfortunately, Kansas just never got within striking distance down the stretch. They never found anything that could consistently work against the Baylor defense, which is becoming a theme against the better defensive teams Kansas plays, as they fail to generate any spacing with teams feeling safe sagging off the three point line (remember last year's offense? it's pretty much the same players, folks).

In the end, Baylor would only pull away further, winning 67-55. KU will try to regroup Tuesday night at Oklahoma.
