Another Big Monday games looms for the Jayhawks.

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas hosts Texas in a Big Monday matchup inside Allen Fieldhouse.

Kansas is the #3 team in the country in the AP Poll, while Texas comes in unranked, which of course is still hilarious. KenPom currently has KU at #1 and UT at #68.

Kansas leads the all-time series with Texas 34-9, which includes a 17-1 record inside Allen Fieldhouse. The most recent meeting was a littler over two weeks ago in Austin, a 66-57 Kansas victory that wasn’t really as close as the score indicates.

Here are the essentials:

The Numbers

(3) Kansas: 18-3, 7-1

Fun Facts

With its win last Monday, Kansas is now 70-18 all-time on Big Monday, which includes a record of 40-1 at home.

Kansas has won 12 of the last 13 meetings with Texas.

Udoka Azubuike is the only player in the Big 12 averaging a double-double in conference games.

Texas still isn’t back. In fact, they’ve been gone for quite a while. The Longhorns haven’t finished a season in the AP Top-25 since 2010-11, which coincidentally was the last time they lost fewer than 11 games in a season.

Shaka Smart is 31-41 in Big 12 play through 4+ seasons.
