Xavier Henry scored 11 points in a stunning 21-2 run that broke a tight game wide open and carried No. 1 Kansas past No. 23 Texas A&M 79-66 in a rough-and-tumble Big 12 semifinal Friday night.
Texas A&M (23-9) led by as many as nine points early in the
second half while the regular-season Big 12 champion Jayhawks
(31-2) fouled and fumbled and committed turnover after turnover.
But the Aggies, who outplayed Kansas throughout the first half,
ran into a sudden field goal drought that lasted more than 8
minutes and Kansas suddenly could hardly miss.
Sherron Collins had six of his 26 points in the big run that
made Kansas 16-1 all-time against the Aggies and sent them into the
finals against the winner between No. 9 Kansas State and No. 21
