No. 7 Texas beats Baylor 60-54 to end Big 12 skid

Texas freshman Tristan Thompson had 19 points
and 13 rebounds with some spectacular putback dunks, and the
seventh-ranked Longhorns pulled out a 60-54 victory Saturday night
at Baylor, whose NCAA tournament hopes took another big hit.
The Longhorns (25-6, 13-3 Big 12), coming off consecutive losses
for the first time this season, overcame a nine-point deficit in
the second half. They go into next week's Big 12 tournament as the
No. 2 seed.
LaceDarius Dunn had 22 points for Baylor (18-12, 7-9) to become
the Big 12's career scoring leader. Dunn scored 12 points in a 22-6
run over a 7-minute stretch that spanned the closing 3½ minutes of
the first half and the start of the second half, putting the Bears
up 34-25.
Thompson then had one of his putback dunks and an inside basket
to start the Longhorns' comeback.
