FINAL: Kansas stages second-half comeback in 64-59 victory over Texas

The Kansas men's basketball team overcame an 11-point second-half deficit, rallying to take a 64-59 victory over Texas on Saturday afternoon in Austin, Texas.

With KU up 62-59, Texas' Julien Lewis missed a three from the corner with 13 seconds left that would have tied it, and KU's Travis Releford came away with the defensive rebound before he was fouled.

The senior made two free throws with seven seconds left to put the game away for good.

Texas' biggest advantage came at the 15:22 mark of the second half, as Jonathan Holmes put in a jumper to make it 42-31.

KU retook the lead with 4:13 left on a fastbreak dunk by Ben McLemore that made it 54-53.

McLemore led KU with 16 points on 6-for-10 shooting. Jeff Withey added 14 points and nine rebounds, while Releford chipped in 12 points.

KU (16-1) will travel to play at Kansas State at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

EJ has been having a lot of bad days lately. He needs to sit for awhile.

Brianna Zaleski in reply to Eric TheCapn

Swish

Ian Ballinger in reply to Jeffrey Nelson

Kansas... they can beat you right out of the gates or let you have your moment and then crush your dreams in the last three minutes. Your choice

Eric TheCapn

This whole board is agreement on Tharpe at point and EJ at 2. That might mean Tharpe taking fewer hurried/stupid shots and EJ getting better ones!

Lifelong_jayhawk in reply to Ian Ballinger

The Phog was about 30 minutes late.

Theend

EJ just ghad a bad day....he will be fine. And he nailed his FT's.....so something good there.

Jeffrey Nelson

We make other teams' fans so disappointed...consistently. That's a great feeling.

Ian Ballinger in reply to Lifelong_jayhawk

The Phog followed us to Texas I guess

Brianna Zaleski

I think we might've found a new lineup with Tharpe @ point and EJ @SG

Jeffrey Nelson

Hot.

Lifelong_jayhawk

How on earth did we pull that off?

Sawman3333 in reply to Ian Ballinger

KU 68 KSU 50

Nomansland

We are do for a blowout win and I can think of no better team than KSU to do it against! Rock Chalk!

fansincewilt

That's the lineup he played at the end with Iowa State.

Theend

To still win in a pretty bad performance is a good sign

Ian Ballinger in reply to Lajayhawk

we've had pretty wins, just not against any worthy teams. Anyone remember how we only beat Emporia State by like 10?

Johninkc1

TX better than 0-4. With our shot selecton today, we are forutnate. Hope we play better against KSU.

Theend in reply to Wissoxfan83

It's so predictable.....happens every time.

Sawman3333

And someone let Coach Self that we'll keep him on for a few more games!

Justin Daniel in reply to Sawman3333

Gotta play better than that Tuesday or we will get beat by 20

Bwag

It was just painfully ugly

Lajayhawk

Well, at least we've mastered winning ugly.... perhaps one of these games we can work on winning pretty, instead.....

Psm

Naadir needs to start at point and Elijah should come off the bench. EJ is not a point guard.

Ian Ballinger

Predictions for the KSU game... KU 75 KSU 64?

Wissoxfan83 in reply to Sawman3333

Glad someone recognizes it!

Danr

Someone go tell the dude that went out to wash his car that the Hawks won.

Eric TheCapn

Not many people here panicked, Sox. They players did, though.

Ian Ballinger in reply to Wissoxfan83

i never doubted you

Robb Kraft

see self shaking his head he knows he stole one today.

Sawman3333 in reply to Wissoxfan83

You're a prophet!

FINAL
Kansas 64
Texas 59

Jesse Newell

KU overcomes an 11-point second-half deficit to improve to 16-1.

Wissoxfan83

Remember when I said don't panic til the last minute of the game? When will you children learn?!!

Aircapjay

WOW!

Robb Kraft

thank god Kbon did not play today.

Lajayhawk

Rock Chalk

Sawman3333

Bottom line: 4-0 in Conference and UT is 0-4.

Cshjhawk

These guys are going to be tough when Kabongo plays.

Ian Ballinger

ball game... get ready for KSU

Joe Satterwhite

Whew!

Danr

I believe I will be deleting this off the DVR. I'm not watching it again.

Eric TheCapn in reply to Sawman3333

The problem is, we've had three of these games in two weeks and we're playing nobodies.

Nomansland in reply to Justin Daniel

And they can stay that way!

Lajayhawk

I'm gonna love it when this mid-season funk ends.... one of these days.....

Jhwkr542

My worry over that TO from Self was valid apparently. Oh well, escaping another one!!!

Dnvrhawk

huge FT by Releford

Bwag

Releford $

Brian Powell

man, heart skipped a beat on that 3

Greatjake

How many minutes does KU need to play well to beat Texas - less than 10?

Robb Kraft

lucky

Jesse Newell

Releford will shoot two. KU needs one.

Ian Ballinger in reply to Sawman3333

Exactly.

fansincewilt

Need at least one.

Eric TheCapn

Good D by Ben.

Sawman3333

Call me nuts, but I'm glad we have a game like this now. It's gonna happen in the Tournament at least one game that we come out flat and get behind. This will help.

Lajayhawk

Solid D pressure from Texas.

Aircapjay

Dumb.

Eric TheCapn

What in the world, Tharpe?

Dnvrhawk

WTF

Lawkan

had to diagram that brilliant play

Ian Ballinger

OH BILLY IT IS NOT OVER!

Justin Daniel in reply to Nomansland

Not yet

Ian Ballinger in reply to Cshjhawk

tis true

Aircapjay

Drive and draw a foul.

Greg_brostertag

I like Nadir running point...our offense needs a change

Nomansland

Somebody enlighten me..has UT won a Big 12 game yet?

Cshjhawk in reply to Z00land3r

As Wilt said, "you have to take the bitter with the sweet"!

Kjd

@becripps a year ago, no way

Eric TheCapn

40% FG shooting for KU now. Texas at 46%.

Ted Adams

Score here, and game over.

Jhwkr542

Anyone else not like the TO there? We have the ball in position. Now we have to inbounds it. One more chance for a TO...

Ian Ballinger in reply to Nomansland

Just rusty going into conference play... we'll get in the swing of things.

Dnvrhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

LOL

Brian Powell

how many OT games has Texas played? 2 or 3? Let's hope it doesn't get there today.

Hawkfromhays

We better not play this was in the Octagon of Dumb

Lajayhawk

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't isolate for EJ. PLEEEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE......

Nomansland in reply to Z00land3r

Very ugly.

00:40 left in Second Half
Kansas 62
Texas 59

Jesse Newell

Self calls another timeout.

Z00land3r

if we win it will considered and ugly one

Brian Powell

While we sucked across the board (except maybe FTs), we made the little plays when it mattered.

Kufaninflorida

Good shot and then Solid D now

Nomansland

This game shouldn't even be this close. Hard to believe this is the same team that whipped Ohio State a month ago.

Dnvrhawk in reply to Wissoxfan83

Tharpe gets the assist

Lifelong_jayhawk

How on earth are we winning this game with the poor effort we've given most of the day?

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

You and I don't disagree very often. And we DEFINITELY don't disagree on that.

01:00 left in Second Half
Kansas 62
Texas 59

Jesse Newell

McClellan up to 18 points on 8-for-18 shooting.

Aircapjay

We need solid D!

Wissoxfan83

Can Withey get an assist and a block on the same play?

Lajayhawk in reply to Greg_brostertag

He won't be credited with an assist on that. At least, by rule, he shouldn't.

fansincewilt

Is that a block shot for Withey. It should be.

Danr

Jeff is not saving the guards' butts today.

Hawkfromhays

McClellan looks like a player

Brian Powell

W.

Ian Ballinger

not over

Jesse Newell

KU finally got some defensive turnovers. It's changed the game.

Lajayhawk

Thought Tharpe was gonna toss that off the glass... Self would have eaten him alive.

Greg_brostertag

nice assist, dir!

Aircapjay

No fouls.

Eric TheCapn

<3

Brian Powell

one more stop and we got it!

Hawkfromhays in reply to Justin Daniel

No shots on a player control
