LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Fourth-ranked Baylor has won 11 games in a row after handing No. 22 Texas Tech a rare home loss. Davion Mitchell scored 14 points, while Freddie Gillespie had nine points and 10 rebounds in a 57-52 win Tuesday night. Baylor improved to 12-1. Texas Tech had its 15-game home winning streak snapped despite Jahmi'us Ramsey's 20 points. The 10-4 Red Raiders hadn't lost a home since last January 16 against Iowa State. They are 58-6 at home in coach Chris Beard's four seasons.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kevin Samuel deftly tipped in RJ Nembhard's errant floater with 1.7 seconds remaining, allowing TCU to escape with an ugly 59-57 victory over Kansas State. Samuel finished with 10 points and 15 rebounds to lead four players in double-figures scoring for the Horned Frogs (11-3), who are off to a 2-0 start in the Big 12 for the first time since joining the conference. Desmond Bane contributed 16 points, Nembhard added 15 and Jaire Grayer finished with 10. Xavier Sneed led Kansas State (7-7, 0-2) with 19 points, though he was just 5 of 14 from the field.
UNDATED (AP) — Baylor's next coach will take over a better and much different situation than Matt Rhule did just over three years ago. The Bears went 11-3 this season, going to the Big 12 title game and Sugar Bowl. Rhule was named Tuesday as head coach of the NFL's Carolina Panthers. Baylor has already started a nationwide search for his replacement. Rhule arrived in Waco, Texas, to a depleted roster in the aftermath of a sprawling sexual assault scandal that led to Art Briles getting fired in May 2016. The Bears went 7-6 under interim coach Jim Grobe before going 1-11 in Rhule's debut in 2017.
AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State hosts No. 3 Kansas on Wednesday night looking to recapture some of its home magic. The Cyclones lost four of their last five home games last season and have dropped two already this year. They have won 84 percent of their home games over the past nine years. Iowa State coach Steve Prohm says he plans to mix and match his four-guard sets and two-forward lineups. He is also worried about stopping Kansas big man Udoka Azubuike and Jayhawks guard Devon Dotson.
