Oklahoma State upsets No. 6 Texas Tech; Virginia clinches ACC title

Almost 280 miles away from Lawrence, Kan., Oklahoma State completed a stunning upset of No. 6 Texas Tech - besting the Red Raiders in a 79-71 triumph at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Kansas will enter Saturday's game against Texas Tech in sole possession of first place in the Big 12 with three games to play.

Conversely, a road win over the Red Raiders on Saturday would clinch the Jayhawks a share of the Big 12 regular season championship for the 14th consecutive season, which would break the all-time record.

On Wednesday night against Kansas State, Texas head coach Shaka Smart watched from the sideline as his team botched good offensive sets with alarming regularity, failing to find field goals for minutes at a time. This matchup could very well decide who wins the league - and in fact, Kansas can clinch a share of its 14th straight conference crown with a victory. He is a big-time player and one of the best players in the league in my opinion. He started against Oklahoma State and played 25 minutes. The bench was crucial for the Red Raiders in the first matchup at Kansas, scoring 42 of their 85 points. The Sooners were blown out by the Jayhawks 104-74 on Monday.

Oklahoma State had more second-chance points with 8, compared to Kansas' 6. Oklahoma State is at Texas, which is fighting for an NCAA Tournament berth. The Bruins won all 13 of their titles outright while the Jayhawks have won nine outright Big 12 titles during their 13-year title run so far. Kansas is averaging 10.2 3s per game, followed by Oklahoma at 9.7. Young's struggles of late have been well documented.

K-State ran its winning to a series-best four games over Texas (16-12, 6-9 Big 12) and swept the season series for the second consecutive season.

ON THE WOMEN'S SIDE: Baylor has clinched its eighth straight conference title. They then lost another game at Allen Fieldhouse to their conference rivals, the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
