Big XII: Huge KU Run Cuts Texas Lead at Half

By Jean Neuberger - March 11, 2007

Texas might have the lead, but it's the KU fans who are up and cheering right now. Down 32-10 with 8:08 to go, the Jayhawks ran off an incredible 24-7 run to end the half, making it 39-34 'Horns at the break.

The run was sparked by various Jayhawks getting hot hands. First it was Chalmers with two baskets in a row, then it was Julian Wright, then it was a 3-point blitzkrieg by Brandon Rush and Sherron Collins. Add in a Darrell Arthur dunk, and you have your run.

Kevin Durant's got 22 points for the Horns, but he didn't score in the last 5:44, as the Kansas man-to-man fought off Texas with knock-aways, and the frustrated Texas team committed several turnovers to end the half.

It'll be a great second half...Texas had the lead, but Kansas has the momentum.
