The Week Thus Far in Big 12 Hoops

The trend of home team domination throughout the conference continued as home teams were perfect thus far this week.  The biggest game, of course, was the Monday night affair between Texas and Kansas St.  The Wildcats pulled out the W and below is home video shot while the K-State student section chants "We Own Texas."

The rest of the scores, recaps and players of the game are below The Jump.

(10) Kansas St - 71

(1) Texas - 62
in Manhattan, KS
More than 15 minutes after the final horn, thousands of Kansas State fans lingered in the stands to savor a hard-earned victory.

No floor-rushing celebrations, no hopping on the scorer's table, just a loud, sustained ovation.

 

Even against the nation's No. 1 team, Kansas State and its fans, many wearing fake beards in homage to high-scoring Jacob Pullen, expected to win.

Sherron Collins had 28 points and hit his fifth 3-pointer with just over a minute left, helping No. 3 Kansas outlast No. 25 Baylor 81-75 Wednesday.

 

Kansas (17-1, 3-0) used its depth to get Baylor's big front line in foul trouble and hit just enough shots down the stretch to eke out its 53rd straight win at Allen Fieldhouse. Collins got the Jayhawks started with two nifty assists and closed it out with a 3-pointer from the wing, combining with Marcus Morris to score 12 of Kansas' final 14 points.
