The Kansas Jayhawks and the Texas Longhorns will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Frank Erwin Center.

ABOUT KANSAS (25-3, 13-2 Big 12): The Jayhawks had barely put on their “13 straight champions” hats and t-shirts after the TCU win when news emerged that two of their top three scorers, freshman guard Josh Jackson (16.5 points per game) and junior guard Devonte’ Graham (13.1), were involved in two different police incidents. Graham was arrested and released for failure to appear in court for a traffic ticket for an expired license-plate tag last June while Jackson was charged with damaging a car outside a Lawrence, Kan., bar last December. Self said both had already been disciplined and will play Saturday.

ABOUT TEXAS (10-18, 4-11): The Longhorns bring a four-game losing streak into the contest but have been competitive at home where they are 4-3 in conference play with all seven games being decided by four points or fewer. With leading scorer Tevin Mack (14.8) suspended indefinitely since early January, 6-11 freshman forward Jarrett Allen has become the main man for the Longhorns, averaging 13.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game while also shooting 57.6 percent from the floor. Freshman guard Andrew Jones (11.3 points) and sophomore guard Kerwin Roach Jr. (10.2) also are averaging in double figures, with Roach also leading the team in assists (3.8) and steals (1.6).

Oddsmakers currently have the Jayhawks listed as 8-point favorites versus the Longhorns, while the game’s total is sitting at 145½.

Third-ranked Kansas made history when it clinched at least a share of its 13th straight Big 12 Conference title with a 87-68 win over TCU on Wednesday night. The Jayhawks can make it an outright championship with a victory at Texas on Saturday.

Kansas (13-2 Big 12) has a three-game lead on Baylor, West Virginia and Iowa State who enter the weekend in a tie for second place at 10-5 with three games remaining. So its possible, though highly unlikely, that the Jayhawks could still share the crown if they close Big 12 play on a three-game losing streak. No matter what happens down the stretch, however, Kansas will join UCLA, which won 13 straight Pac-8/Pac-10 titles from 1967-79, as the only teams in college basketball history to win 13 consecutive regular-season championships. “Winning never gets old,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “Losing gets old fast. … I hugged about everybody (after Wednesday’s win). I hugged them all. It has been an unbelievable run.”

Last time out for Texas, they were a 77-62 loser as they battled Mountaineers on the road. They earned a push in the match as a +15-point underdog.

Kansas was a 87-68 winner in its last match at home against Horned Frogs. They covered the -12-point spread as favorites.
