Baylor Lets Big Lead Slip Away Against Texas In Big 12 Quarterfinals

By  | 

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- Kevin Durant finished with 29 points and 13 rebounds, and Number 15 Texas rallied from a 20-point deficit to
beat Baylor 74-69 tonight in the Big 12 Conference quarterfinals.

Third-seeded Texas advances to play seventh-seeded Oklahoma
State in the semifinals tomorrow. The Longhorns and Cowboys split a
pair of games earlier this season, including a triple-overtime
classic won by Oklahoma State.

Durant missed his first 12 shots and had just five first-half
points. He just missed the Big 12 record for points in a half of
26.

Baylor has lost 27 straight games against ranked foes.
