NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Wayne Selden Jr. shot 5 for 10 from 3-point range and finished with a career-high 24 points as No. 18 Kansas started Big 12 Conference play with a 90-83 win over Oklahoma on Wednesday night.

Kansas (10-4, 1-0) won its conference opener for the 23rd straight year, a streak that began with the 1991-92 season. Oklahoma, in January 1991, was the last team to beat the Jayhawks in a conference opener.

After a 5-0 start, Kansas lost four of its next eight and was coming off a 61-57 loss to San Diego State on Sunday that ended the Jayhawks' 68-game home winning streak against nonconference foes. Perry Ellis had 22 points on 6-for-8 shooting and 11 rebounds, helping the Jayhawks shoot 55 percent from the field.

Cameron Clark had a career high-tying 32 points for Oklahoma (12-3, 1-1), which lost for the second time in three games.
