KANSAS CITY, Mo. - It may sound redundant, but here it goes ... KU started slow in the Sprint Center, using an early second half run to build a lead it wouldn't relinquish, advancing in Big 12 Tournament play. It was the case Friday night in a 64-54 win over Nebraska, and was again Saturday in a 77-71 semifinal triumph over pesky Texas A&M, giving KU its 30th win of the season and a berth in Sunday's title game against Texas, who earlier knocked off Oklahoma, 77-49. It marks the third straight year the league's tournament will end with a KU-UT showdown. KU won each of the past two years.

Darrell Arthur's a man. He's (almost) 20. That's why 22-year-old Kansas University junior guard Brandon Rush won't get after the sophomore forward following Arthur's six-point performance on just 1-of-4 shooting in a 64-54 escape from Nebraska's first-half grasp in the first round of the Big 12 tournament on Friday at Sprint Center.
Maybe it's because Kansas University's basketball players had pummeled Nebraska by 35 points at home and 21 on the road this season and expected to pound NU again without breaking a sweat.
