LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas finally put a blemish on second-ranked Baylor’s perfect season.

David McCormack bruised his way to 20 points, Marcus Garrett added 14 on his senior night and the No. 17 Jayhawks beat the Bears 71-58 to leave top-ranked Gonzaga as the nation’s only unbeaten team.

They also made sure Baylor would need to wait at least a few more days to clinch its first conference title since 1950.

Kansas improved to 17-5 against top-10 teams in Allen Fieldhouse under coach Bill Self.

Baylor led wire-to-wire when the teams met last month in Waco, Texas.
