Kansas dropped in the rankings after Saturday's loss to Kentucky. They will fall even further if they can't beat Texas on the road tonight.

The unranked Longhorns are just 11-9 overall and 3-4 in the Big 12, but they lead Kansas 26-23 at halftime in Austin. Kerwin Roach is leading the way for Texas with nine points on 3-of-7 shooting from three-point range.

Kansas hasn't been itself lately without big man Udoka Azubuike, who is out for the season with an injury. The now-undersized Jayhawks are in a grind-it-out battle against the Longhorns tonight.

Freshman Ochai Agbaji is carrying a major load for KU tonight, having scored nine points in the first half. Dedric Lawson (19.5 ppg) is Kansas' leading scorer, but he didn't produce a point in the first 20 minutes.

The Jayhawks also turned the ball over eight times in the first half.

The second half of Kansas-Texas is coming up momentarily.
