Kansas 66, Texas 57

AUSTIN, Texas - Devon Dotson returned from a hip injury to score 21 points, including the final seven of the game for Kansas, leading the No. 6 Jayhawks over Texas 66-57.

Dotson made a long 3-pointer with 2:49 to play, then closed out the victory with four straight free throws in the final 39 seconds.

Udoka Azubuike scored 17 points and a scoring burst from him early in the second half allowed Kansas (14-3, 4-1 Big 12) to take the lead.

Kansas closed the game with a 12-3 run that started with consecutive baskets from Marcus Garrett. The Jayhawks got a big break when Garrett was initially called for a charge, but the foul was quickly reversed. The layup counted, Garrett made the free throw and Jayhawks led 59-54 before Dotson closed it out.

Dotson's 3-pointer was just the second of the game for Kansas, the best-shooting team in the Big 12 from long range. Kansas attempted only 10, opting instead to push the ball inside to Azubuike, who was locked in a battle under the basket with Texas' Jericho Sims.

Sims scored 20 points for the Longhorns (12-5, 2-3) and tied the game at 54-all. Texas gave him little help from the outside. After averaging 12.5 3-pointers in their previous two games, the Longhorns were just 6 of 20 on Saturday.
