Texas added more questions and excitement to the Big 12 race, raising even more doubts about the Kansas run for the 15th straight title in the regular season.
The Longhorns upset No. 11 Kansas, 73-63, on Tuesday, which dropped KU to 16-5 in total and only 5-3 in the Big 12. Texas is now 12-9 in total and 4-4 in the league. The victory broke Texas with 10 games against Kansas. The Longhorns had not defeated the KU since February 1, 2014.
The Stunner is another variant of the Big 12 rating. The league's top two teams, Kansas and No. 16 Texas Tech, are both 5-3. That's half a game behind Kansas State and Baylor – both 5: 2. # 20 Iowa State is a game behind 4-3.

Instead of Lawson, Ochai Agbaji led the KU and kept the Jayhawks in the game by scoring 24 points with only 10 strokes.
DOWN GOES KANSAS!

Texas made 10 3 hands and finished positive 8 free throws to hold Kansas. Four players reached a double-digit number on the Longhorns, led by Dylan Osetkowski with 16 points. Jase Febres came off the bench for four massive three-pointers.
The surprise continues a strong home race from Texas against the top 20 opponents. The Longhorns have won 6-1 in their last seven home matches against the top 20 teams. All victories were scored against the big twelve.
The surprise came only a few days after the Longhorns had given 98 points on Saturday in a 10-point defeat to Georgia.
On Tuesday, Texas was only 1: 2. Five in their last six games, including an 80-78 defeat in Kansas. But now the Longhorns and the coach Shaka Smart are a big surprise, making the Big 12 title race even more dramatic.
