AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Kansas had already won the Big 12 championship by the time the Jayhawks made their last trip of the season down to Texas.

The Longhorns sent them home with a message: The league tournament promises to be every bit as rugged as the regular season.

Sir’Jabari Rice scored 23 points and a smothering defensive effort carried No. 9 Texas to a 75-59 win over No. 3 Kansas on Saturday that earned the Longhorns a second-place finish in the Big 12.
