LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Devon Dotson hit six 3-pointers and scored 29 points, five Kansas players hit double-figures scoring, and the third-ranked Jayhawks rolled to a 91-71 victory over Iowa State. The win sets up a monumental rematch with No. 1 Baylor. Ochai Agbaji added 14 points, Udoka Azubuike and Christian Braun scored 13 apiece, and David McCormack scored 10 for the Jayhawks, who have not lost since the Bears beat them at Allen Fieldhouse in mid-January. Prentiss Nixon scored 20 points, Matt Jacobson had 13 and Rasir Bolton 12 for the slumping Cyclones, who have lost 14 of their last 15 games at the Phog and still have not won a road game this season.

UNDATED (AP) — Baylor coach Kim Mulkey is set to reach 600 career wins in fewer games than any other Division I men's or women's coach. Mulkey takes a 599-100 record into the No. 2 Lady Bears' game at Texas Tech on Tuesday night. She has won three national championships in her 20 seasons. Adolph Rupp won 876 games overall with the Kentucky men from 1930-72. His 600th win came in his 704th game in 1959. That means Mulkey can beat Rupp's mark if the Lady Bears win one of their next four games. The defending national champs have won a record 53 consecutive Big 12 regular-season games.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Jared Butler scored 16 of his 21 points in the first half, and top-ranked Baylor never trailed while tying the longest winning streak in Big 12 history at 22 games with a 70-59 victory over No. 14 West Virginia. The Bears led by 19 in the first half and answered a scoreless stretch of nearly four minutes before halftime by starting the second half on a 20-3 run. Taz Sherman scored a season-high 20 points for the Mountaineers. West Virginia tied a season high with 22 turnovers and shot 35% in a third consecutive loss.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Marcus Garrett scored a career-high 24 points, Devon Dotson added 19 and third-ranked Kansas rolled to an 87-70 victory over Oklahoma. The Jayhawks kept pace with No. 1 Baylor in a two-team race toward the Big 12 title. Garrett hit a career-best six 3-pointers while adding seven assists, five rebounds and four steals. Udoka Azubuike added 15 points and 17 rebounds and Ochai Agbaji scored 10 points. The Jayhawks won their 10th straight since falling to the Bears at Allen Fieldhouse in early January. Kristian Doolittle had 27 points and 12 boards to lead the Sooners.
