AUSTIN, Texas — Texas and Kansas State, two of the teams at the bottom of the Big 12 Conference standings, squared off Saturday in a race to see which team would own at least a piece of the league cellar.
Someone had to win, and it ended up being the Longhorns, who strung together a spirited second-half stretch of defense and opportunistic scoring to waltz past hapless and, suddenly, toothless Kansas State 64-50 at the Erwin Center in Big 12 Conference play.
