The Kansas Jayhawks and the Texas Longhorns meet in college basketball action from Frank Erwin Center on Saturday. 

Kansas is sitting at 13-3 so far. The Jayhawks are 4-1 in the last five games, falling to Baylor while otherwise dispatching Stanford, West Virginia, Iowa State and Oklahoma in that time. 

In the win over the Sooners, Kansas’ top scorer was Isaiah Moss with 20 points, four rebounds and one assist. Udoka Azubuike doubled up on 16 points and 14 rebounds there, and Marcus Garrett had 15 points, five rebounds and five assists.

Over on the Texas side, they’re 12-4 so far. The Longhorns are 2-2 in their last four, falling to Oklahoma and Baylor while otherwise beating Kansas State and Oklahoma State.  

In the win over the Cowboys, Texas’ Kamake Hepa topped the team on 15 points with four rebounds. Both Courtney Ramey and Andrew Jones scored 14 points apiece, combining for seven assists and 12 rebounds. 

The Longhorns are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 overall and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 after a straight-up win. Texas is 2-7 ATS in their last nine home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, the Jayhawks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. Kansas is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 overall and the under is 4-1 in the last five on Saturday. 

Kansas had a little trouble getting clear of Oklahoma in their last game, but eventually banged out a 14-point win. It was a pretty solid bounce back from their 67-55 loss to Baylor, but the Jayhawks have still scored 66 or fewer in three of their last four. 

As for Texas, they’ve been something of a mixed bag scoring-wise lately, and have just 126 combined points in their last two home games. I’m leaning toward the Jayhawks taking care of business here.
