basketball didn’t play on Wednesday, but there was still plenty to cheer about for Jayhawks fans on the hardwood.
Nearly 280 miles away from Lawrence, Kan., Oklahoma State completed a stunning upset of No. 6 Texas Tech — besting
the Red Raiders in a 79-71 triumph at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
The outcome gave Kansas the outright lead in the Big 12 Conference Standings. With a win over the Red Raiders on Saturday
in Lubbock, the Jayhawks can claim at least a share of the regular-season conference title — which would mark the team’s
14th straight Big 12 regular-season crown.
Needless to say, Kansas fans took to Twitter to celebrate — and to give a nice big thank you to Oklahoma State —
following the the Cowboys’ victory.
Texas Tech and Kansas will tip-off at 3:15 p.m. CT on Saturday at the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas. The
game will be televised on ESPN, with College GameDay setting up camp at the arena that morning. The Red Raiders previously
defeated the Jayhawks in Lawrence last month — marking Texas Tech’s first ever win at Allen Fieldhouse.
