OSU edges Baylor

(Continued)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —

Forte finished with 14 points, Markel Brown added 11 and Michael Cobbins 10 for the Cowboys.

No. 7 Kansas 91, Texas Tech 63: Ben McLemore scored 24 points to lead Kansas to a rout of Texas Tech, setting up an intriguing date with Iowa State in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament.

The regular-season co-champion, Kansas was pushed by Texas Tech in their meeting in Lubbock earlier this season, but used a big run early in the second half to put this one away early.

The Jayhawks (27-5) shot 66 percent from the field (31 of 47), the best mark by any team in a Big 12 tournament game. Dejan Kravic scored 20 points and Dusty Hannahs added 15 for the Red Raiders (11-20).

No. 11 Kansas St. 66, Texas 49: Rodney McGruder scored 24 points and sparked an 11-0 run in the second half, lifting Kansas State past Texas in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.

McGruder also had a team-leading seven rebounds as the second-seeded Wildcats (26-6) whipped the Longhorns for the third time this year.

Julien Lewis scored 13 points and Jonathan Holmes had 10 for Texas.
