Final: No. 14 Texas 75, No. 17 Kansas 72

Texas became just the second team to sweep Kansas in the regular season since the 2003-04 season. Thanks to a critical 15-3 run in the second half, the Longhorns turned a double-digit deficit into an overtime win, ending Kansas's five-game winning streak.

Four of Texas's five starters scored in double figures, led by Courtney Ramey's 15 points. Ramey made all eight of his free throw attempts in the game. Andrew Jones added a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, and point guard Matt Coleman III was one rebound shy of a double-double.

Kansas entered the game in third place in the Big 12 and Texas was in fifth in the conference standings. Now, the Longhorns are 8-5 in the Big 12 and the Jayhawks are 11-6.

Kansas at Texas: Game preview, prediction

In March Madness correspondent Andy Katz's latest NCAA tournament predictions (reflecting games played through Feb. 12), Texas was a No. 4 seed and Kansas was a No. 6 seed. Both schools are in the top five of the 10-team conference and now they'll meet in Austin on Tuesday, Feb. 23. The game tips off at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The first time these two schools met, back on Jan. 2, Texas beat Kansas in Lawrence 84-59 in a game in which the Longhorns made 12 3-pointers at a 46-percent clip, while the Jayhawks made just three at a 13-percent rate.

The Longhorns have the third-most efficient offense in conference play, while Kansas has the second-best defense in Big 12 action. Kansas has won its last five games to improve to 11-5 in conference play, while Texas has lost four of its last six, so these two teams are arguably moving in the opposite direction.

Prediction: Kansas 81, Texas 75
