Shooting for Season’s End: Texas Something, Kansas Something More

NCAA Basketball: Baylor at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Death, taxes, Bill Self winning a regular season Big 12 title.

Jarrett Allen double-doubled and Andrew Jones scored some points and there are unenviable odds that neither player wears Burnt Orange next year. Huzzah.

Texas had 15 turnovers against 8 assists, which is—how do you say?—not good.

The starting backcourt combined to shoot 3-16 from 3. Luckily, Jacob Young had his best shooting game of the year, going a ripe 2-2 overall, 1-1 from distance. That helped bring the Longhorns’ 3% shooting percentage all the way up to...18.8%.

I felt like Texas was doing a good job grabbing offensive boards early, but turns out they were outrebounded there, 10-9.

Shaq Cleare somehow collected two blocks, tying his season high. Along with 4 points and 3 boards in 24 minutes despite Kansas having one viable big man. Mo Isom got 12 minutes of PT. Kendal Yancy’s slow and steady descent has become more confounding than Justin Mason. Senior night is next weekend.

The dudes played hard and lost expectedly. Everyone is ready for this season to be over.
