Since that cold, midweek game when Avery Bradley and Damion James were making big plays for Texas, UT had never come out of Hilton with a win. Until tonight.

The Texas Longhorns and the Kansas Jayhawks played even for the first half Friday, with the Jayhawks entering halftime with a 37-34 lead. Longhorn freshman Mohamed Bamba and Kansas senior Devonte’ Graham each put in stellar first half performances, with Bamba scoring 16 and blocking 5 shots and Graham scoring 12 on 4-of-8 from three. Then, Kansas shot the lights out at the Erwin Center.
