No. 11 Texas edges No. 3 Kansas

Box score

AUSTIN, Texas — Damion James scores 12 points and grabs 13 rebounds in the second half, and No. 11 Texas holds off No. 3 Kansas 72-69 in yet another thrilling matchup in a rivalry that has quickly escalated into one of the best in the Big 12.

James missed most of the first half with foul trouble, then provided the muscle Texas (20-4, 7-2 Big 12 ) needed to counter the Jayhawks' size and strength under the basket.

James finished with 14 points. Connor Atchley led Texas with 16 points and A.J. Abrams added 14 points.

Darrell Arthur scored 22 to lead the Jayhawks (23-2, 8-2), who lost for just the second time in 33 regular season games dating back to last season.
