LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Svi Mykhailiuk came off the bench to score 17 points, Frank Mason III added 16 and No. 2 Kansas beat Texas Tech 67-58 on Saturday to secure at least a share of its 12th straight Big 12 title.
Mykhailiuk hit five 3-pointers and didn’t miss a shot until the final minute, helping the Jayhawks (25-4, 13-3) extend one of the most remarkable streaks in major college basketball.
The only school to win more consecutive conference championships was UCLA, which won 13 in a row during the 1960s and `70s. The Jayhawks can win their eighth outright title during their streak with a win Monday night at No. 25 Texas or in their regular-season finale against No. 17 Iowa State.
Toddrick Gotcher hit five 3s and led the Red Raiders (18-10, 8-8) with 20 points.
