Oklahoma State at #7 Kansas: 

After handing Baylor a beat down on the road, the seventh ranked Kansas Jayhawks came back home to the friendly confines of Allenfieldhouse to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Jayhawks wasted no time taking control of the game against the Cowboys leading 51-24 at the half, ultimately winning 81-66 for the Jayhawks twentieth win of the season and tenth in the conference (20-5, 10-2).

All five starters for the Jayhawks had themselves double figures for the game, but it was the big men who were the story of the game for KU. Junior forward, Thomas Robinson lead Kansas with another double-double 24 points and 14 rebounds, but it was junior forward, Jeff Whitey that many have been the biggest story of the game.

Kansas State at Texas:

What looked liked it would a nice conference road win for the Kansas State Wildcats, slipped away in the second half and the Texas Longhorns took full advantage to give themselves a conference win at home. The Wildcats lead by 15 points early in the second half, but behind gritty play, offensive runs and the scoring of the Longhorns leading scorer, J'Covan Brown, Texas made a comeback and snatch a double figure win at home 75-64 over Kansas State.

It was truly a tale of two halves for the Wildcats as they couldn't execute the same in the second half as they did in the first half and that is all the Longhorns need was a slim opening to make a run in the second half. The lethal scoring ability of J'Covan Brown struck in the second to spark Texas's offense and the defense picked up the pace, as well for the Longhorns. Brown finished the with a game-high 23 points in the contest, while three other Longhorns finished with double figures, most notably center, Alexis Wangmene who notched 15 points in the game.

Kansas State had four players finish in double figures also with guard, Angel Rodriguez leading the way for the Wildcats with 15 points, but it wasn't enough for Kansas State. With the loss Kansas State fell to 17-7 on the season and 6-6 in the conference, falling into a tie with Texas for fifth in the conference. Texas is 6-6 in the conference and 16-9 overall on the season.
