Game 21: No. 11 Kansas at Texas – Preview and Prediction

The #11 Kansas Jayhawks return to Big 12 play on Tuesday night after a disappointing loss at Kentucky on Saturday. The Jayhawks took down Texas a little over two weeks ago, 80-78, at Allen Fieldhouse. The Longhorns had a chance to win the game with the last shot, but a desperation three-pointer rimmed out at the buzzer.

Game Info and Notes:

  • Tuesday, January 29th, 2019 at 6:00 PM CDT
  • Frank Erwin Center, Austin, Texas
  • ESPN or WatchESPN App
  • Kansas is tied with Kansas State at 5-2 in the Big 12 standings. Baylor is also tied at 5-2 after beating Oklahoma last night. Eight of the 10 teams are within two games of the league lead. Texas is one of those teams at 3-4. Kansas has won the Big 12 regular-season title an NCAA-record 14-consecutive seasons, a streak that began in 2004-05.
  • Kansas has won 10 straight against Texas and leads the overall series, 32-8. KU is 10-6 against the Longhorns in meetings in Austin, with all 16 matchups played in the Erwin Center. The Jayhawks have won their last four trips to Austin.
  • Kansas is 37-4 in conference games decided by 10 points or less since 2016.
  • Kansas is 88-11 following a loss in the Bill Self era, including 3-0 this season. Since 2013-14, the Jayhawks are 38-3 following a loss.
  • Kansas is 90-40 (69.2 percent) in Big 12 road games under head coach Bill Self, since 2003-04, but they are just 1-4 this season.
About the Longhorns

Texas’ up and down season has continued to be just that. Currently they’re in a down swing, as they’ve lost five of their last six games, and they’re coming off a 10-point loss to a rebuilding Georgia team.

This won’t be a cakewalk for KU. First, it seems like no game has been easy for Kansas this season. Second, four of UT’s last five losses have come by less than ten points.

Longhorns to Watch

Kerwin Roach II – Senior, Guard, 6’4″
The highflyer is having his best season to date. He leads the ‘Horns in scoring at 14.3 PPG and has scored in double figures in seven of eight Big 12 games. He’s chipping in with 4.7 RPG and 3.5 APG, while shooting 43 percent from the field. Last season he averaged 16.5 PPG in two games against the Jayhawks.

Jaxson Hayes – Freshman, Forward, 6’11″
Hayes has a solid freshman season so far, averaging 10.5 PPG and 5.1 RPG. He’s also been a good rim protector, swatting away 2.7 shots per game. Even without Udoka Azubuike, KU was able to limit Hayes to eight points and four boards in just 17 minutes in the January 14th matchup


Kansas 77 – Texas 75

I can see this one going either way, as Kansas is just a one-point favorite according to Vegas. This year’s Jayhawks have not blown anyone out, or had any really easy wins. Texas has been in some dogfights, so don’t expect them just to roll over. Watch this one go down to the wire, but in the end, I’ll give the edge to the Bill Self coached team over the Shaka Smart coached team. After all, Self is 7-0 against Shaka Smart since he got to Texas in 2015.

Give me the Jayhawks in a nailbiter.

My name is Bobby Norell. I'm from a small town in northern Indiana. I recently graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Sport Communication. Even though my diploma says I'm a Hoosier, my love for the Jayhawks has never wavered. They'll always come No.1.
