WACO, Texas (AP) No. 3 Kansas never seems to be too far behind to rally for victories.

After another comeback win against a fellow Top 10 team, the Jayhawks are probably too far ahead in the standings for anyone to keep them from claiming their 13th consecutive Big 12 title.

Landen Lucas made two free throws with 11 seconds left, and Kansas didn't allow No. 4 Baylor to get the ball to Johnathan Motley on the last possession, as the Jayhawks grabbed a stranglehold on the Big 12 race with a 67-65 victory Saturday.
