McLemore leads No. 4 Kansas past Baylor 61-44

Ben McLemore scored 17 points before leaving in the final minutes with a right ankle injury, and fourth-ranked Kansas rolled to a 61-44 victory over Baylor on Monday night.

McLemore hit a 3-pointer and then scored an alley-oop dunk off a feed from Elijah Johnson to make it 61-42 with 2:44 remaining. The Jayhawks were back on offense when the freshman appeared to turn his ankle, lying on the court for several minutes while a trainer examined it.

McLemore eventually stood up and was helped to the Kansas locker room.

The injury was just about the only thing that didn't go right for Kansas (15-1, 3-0 Big 12), which won its 14th straight game to match the fourth-longest streak in the Bill Self era.

Freshman center Isaiah Austin had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Bears (11-5, 3-1).
