As shots refused to drop early in the second half, those offensive outcomes didn’t rattle No. 1-ranked Kansas, even as Texas Tech and its home crowd surged on every misfire Saturday afternoon inside United Supermarkets Arena.

Three days after clinching a share of the 2020 Big 12 title, No. 1 Kansas pulled off a hard-fought, 66-62 win at Texas Tech to claim the crown outright on Saturday at United Supermarkets Arena. And the funny thing was it didn’t even have to. With eight minutes to play in Saturday’s victory, Kansas coach Bill Self let his team in on a little secret. By Matt Tait
Before the first media timeout of the second half, No. 1 Kansas became the outright Big 12 champion. The rest of it was just gravy.
