(3) Kansas - 89
Texas Tech - 63
in Lawrence, KS

Marcus Morris has heard the same things almost since the day he arrived at Kansas: You're too soft, you're not competing, you're not playing hard enough.

It wasn't just the coaches, either. Teammates, even friends and family were getting on him and his twin brother, Markieff.

More and more, it seems Marcus is listening. Active and aggressive for the second straight game, Morris had 20 points and eight rebounds to help No. 3 Kansas overcome a sloppy start for an 89-63 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday.

LaceDarius Dunn was called for two fouls in a four-second span. Instead of letting his frustration get the best of him in a tight game, Dunn went on a scoring spurt that put No. 22 Baylor ahead to stay.

Dunn scored nine of his 25 points in a four-minute span after his fouls, including the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 11 minutes left in the 83-70 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.
