KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fourteen years and no longer counting. On Tuesday night, the Kansas Jayhawks’ record-setting streak of 14 straight years of winning at least a share of the Big 12 regular season title came to an end.

The streak was snapped when the Jayhawks lost to the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma.

The Jayhawks hold the longest streak of winning league titles. UCLA is in second with 13 straight from 1967-1979.

Tuesday night’s loss leaves Kansas in third place in the Big 12 with a 11-6 conference record.

Kansas State and Texas Tech are currently tied for first, two games ahead of the Jayhawks with a 13-4 record.

The Wildcats play at home against Oklahoma Saturday. The Red Raiders play at Iowa State on the same day.

If they both win or lose, they will tie for the regular season title.

If one team wins and the other loses, the winning team will take the regular season title outright.

The Jayhawks close out the regular season on Saturday at home against Baylor.

The Big 12 Tournament is next week at the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City.
