TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) Kansas scored the most they have in conference play this year beating Oklahoma 104-74. Devonte Graham had 23 points and seven assists, while Malik Newman added 20 points.

Trae Young struggled again missing 10 of 13 shots, scoring a season low 11 points.

Kansas then continued on to beat Texas Tech, which secures them at least a tie for the conference title, which makes this the 14th consecutive year in a row.

Devonte Graham scored 26 points, including one in the last 30 seconds to put KU ahead, winning 74-72. Keenan Evans is still out with a toe injury while senior Zach Smith played for the first time in 13 games. Kansas plays Texas for its second to last game of the conference season.

A very low scoring game, but a win none the less for the Wildcats, beating Texas 58-48 on Wednesday night. Barry Brown scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and Kansas State pulled away late for the win. Dean Wade added 13 points for Kansas State. Cartier Diarra had 12 points and Xavier Sneed chipped in nine with a game-high 13 rebounds for the Wildcats.

In their second match of the week, the Wildcat's did not have as great of luck. Even though in their first meet K-State kept Trae Young at bay, this week was not the same story. Trae Young scored 27 points to help Oklahoma beat Kansas State 86-77. Barry Brown scored 28 points but it wasn't enough for the win.

The Wildcats were getting votes for the Top 25, but probably won't get there with this loss. Kansas State hosts TCU next, and hopes to get that 10th conference win to get a better seed in the tournament.
