(1) Kansas - 75
Nebraska - 64

in Lawrence, KS

The noise in Allen Fieldhouse saved some Kansas players a little embarrassment Saturday night.

Nobody could overhear coach Bill Self chewing them out.

Whatever Self told them, it worked. Trailing Nebraska by four points in the opening minutes of the second half, the No. 1 ranked Jayhawks took their coach's words to heart and went on a 16-1 tear, finishing with a 75-64 victory for their 55th in a row at home.

Texas Tech - 81
Oklahoma St - 74

in Lubbock, TX

John Roberson scored a season-high 28 points to lead Texas Tech past Oklahoma State 81-74 on Saturday.

The win halted a two-game skid for the Red Raiders (15-7, 3-5 Big 12) and extended the Cowboys' losing streak to three.

(10) Kansas St. - 79
Iowa St - 75

in Ames, IA

Kansas State's Denis Clemente pulled off a seemingly impossible feat on Saturday. He fell onto the same Iowa State fan twice in one game.

The first time, Clemente said he asked the woman for some popcorn and a Coke. The second time, he jokingly wondered where it was.

The way Clemente was shooting, the Wildcats star should have been allowed to enjoy the snack.

Oklahoma- 80
Texas - 71

in Norman, OK

Willie Warren showed it when he limped his way in for a key layup in the final two minutes.

Tommy Mason-Griffin and Cade Davis did, too, in the way they cramped up but came back to help Oklahoma hold off a charge from No. 9 Texas for an 80-71 victory Saturday.

On a day dedicated to Wayman Tisdale, coach Jeff Capel thought it was only right that his players gave their all in memory of the late Sooners star.

Player of the Game: Tommy Mason-Griffin, Oklahoma, 25 pts, 5 reb, 4 assists

Texas A&M - 78
(21) Baylor - 71

in College Station, TX

Texas A&M hasn't made 3-pointers with any consistency all season. That doesn't stop the Aggies from taking them.

The stubbornness paid off Saturday in a 78-71 victory over Baylor.

Keyed by B.J. Holmes' key three 3-pointers late, the Aggies (17-6, 6-3 Big 12) overcame a 12-point first-half deficit to deny Baylor (17-5, 4-4) its third consecutive victory.
