Jonathan Holmes scored 17 points and Cameron Ridley scored 11 points, but it wasn't enough to stop the Big 12-leading Jayhawks from defeating the Longhorns 85-54. Kansas (21-6, 12-2) got their revenge after they fell to Texas, 81-69, on Feb. 1 in Austin.

Texas (20-7, 9-5) freshman guard Isaiah Taylor struggled shooting the ball on Saturday and went 1-for-14 with just five points. It was the Jayhawks' fifth win in the last six meetings with the Longhorns.

Texas returns to action on Wednesday at home against Baylor. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. Central and the game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
