Tom Keegan: Texas Tech experienced and tough at home

If Texas Tech “upsets” Kansas, a four-point favorite, many will want to send out a search party to find an explanation for the unthinkable. Were they flat, exhausted, distracted, robbed by the refs?

Tom Keegan: Josh Jackson will find way to truly be 'good at everything'

The play called for the ball to go to Josh Jackson in the post and it did, where two defenders quickly crowded him. Thinking and acting quickly, as is his way, Jackson whistled the ball to Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk for a wide-open 3 that he hit late to help Kansas score a 74-71 victory over Kansas State in a battle played in front of 12,528 rowdy witnesses. “Biggest shot of the game,” Kansas coach Bill Self said of the Svi 3 that broke a tie with 2:34 left. Kansas led the rest of the way. By Tom Keegan
