Kansas head coach Bill Self said Lecomte's shots weren't the result of a defensive breakdown, they were just clutch.
Baylor led for the final 26 minutes and didn't flinch when Kansas made a charge to get within a basket in the second half. As a matter of fact, senior big man Jo Lual-Acuil is near the top of the Big 12 rebounders averaging over 9 a game.
The Bears made 14 of their final 20 attempts from the floor. The Bears have won back-to-back games and are within striking distance of playing their way into the NCAA Tournament field. Big 12, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jayhawks will have more chances to retake the lead in the Big 12 Conference, but they have three now AP Top 25 ranked teams left to play, and the loss to Baylor doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

The Bears shot 49 percent against the Longhorns as Lecomte and Lual-Acuil scored 17 apiece.
The Jayhawks had such an off-kilter offense against BU, though, that even Graham could only come up with 4 assists, a season-low for the floor general. That is well below his season average.

You can miss all the shots you want to. Unlike last year's KU team, which routinely climbed out of holes, this group hasn't been so fortunate. According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Jayhawks are 2-point road favorites to knock off the Bears after the game opened as a pick'em. However, Kansas would tally only one more field goal before halftime, all while the Bears took advantage.
Earlier in the week, in KU's home win over TCU, the 6-foot-9 freshman never got off the bench. "But at least from an intangible standpoint, give us some stuff".
Upon checking in, De Sousa started off positively enough, deflecting an inbound pass underneath the hoop.
"The great thing, I've said this all along, in the Big 12 there is no bad loss and there are only quality win opportunities".
The stoppage allowed Self to re-insert Azubuike, and De Sousa checked out having played 28 seconds and contributed nothing statistically, other than a foul and a turnover. The Kansas Jayhawks have won five of their last six road games.
