Kansas posted their closest victory since January 6th on Saturday. They came out on top in a nail-biter against the Bears and snuck past 64-61.

Multiple players turned in solid performances to lead Kansas to victory, but perhaps none more so than KJ Adams Jr., who scored 13 points along with three steals. The team also got some help courtesy of Johnny Furphy, who scored 11 points along with six steals and five rebounds.

Meanwhile, Texas Tech came into Saturday's match having lost three straight, but that streak is now in the rearview. They came out on top against the Knights by a score of 66-59 on Saturday.

Texas Tech's success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but Darrion Williams led the charge by dropping a double-double on 13 points and 13 rebounds.

The Jayhawks pushed their record up to 19-5 with that victory, which was their 18th straight at home dating back to last season.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as Kansas and the Red Raiders are some of the highest scoring teams in the league.
