AUSTIN, Texas -- No. 6 Kansas was rolling. The Jayhawks had won seven consecutive games to move to the top of the Big 12. They looked ready to cruise to another league title. So much for that idea. One trip down to No. 25 Texas showed the conference race is far from over. Wayne Selden Jr. scored 21 points, but Kansas struggled for much of an 81-69 loss to the Longhorns on Saturday. Isaiah Taylor scored 23 points and Jonathan Holmes had 22 as Texas earned its sixth consecutive win and pulled within a game of Kansas about halfway through the Big 12 schedule. "It was pretty much a dominating performance by the Longhorns over us today," Kansas coach Bill Self said. The Longhorns (17-4, 6-2), who lost their top four scorers from a 16-18 squad a year ago, have been the surprise of the Big 12 this season. Texas thumped the Jayhawks (16-5, 7-1) with suffocating defence that held the Big 12s best shooting team to 39 per cent from the floor. Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins of Vaughan, Ont., who averaged 24 points over the previous three games, scored seven before fouling out late. The Longhorns outshot and outrebounded the Jayhawks, had 12 blocks, and once they built a double-digit lead, never left Kansas an opening to rally. "We didnt come with a lot of energy tonight. That was the result," Jayhawks forward Perry Ellis said. Taylor, a freshman guard who scored 27 a week earlier against Baylor, continued to slash his way through the Jayhawks for layups and floating jumpers, while Holmes hit from inside and outside. Holmes also went 9 for 10 from the free-throw line. Cameron Ridley added nine points, 10 rebounds and four blocks for Texas, winning his battle under the basket with Joel Embiid, Kansas 7-foot centre. Prince Ibeh also had four blocks. "We know its a long season," Selden said. "Well get back to Lawrence, regroup." The first half was pure frustration for the Jayhawks, who came in shooting 51 per cent as a team. Nothing, not even the open shots, seemed to find their way in the basket. Texas zone defence held the Jayhawks to 8-of-31 shooting in the half. Taylor and Holmes each scored 11 points and Ridley used his powerful body to push around the slender Embiid. When Holmes blocked a shot, grabbed the loose ball and raced up the court for a layup, the Jayhawks Frank Mason met him at the basket with a hard foul and the two players had to be separated. Kansas Brannen Greene was then whistled for a technical foul. Holmes made three of four free throws and Texas led 38-23 at halftime. Texas blew it open early in the second half with an emphatic basket by Ridley: a one-step, two-handed dunk over Embiid. Ridley converted the three-point play and Texas led 47-27. Kansas finally answered with consecutive 3-pointers but the Jayhawks couldnt piece together a run that could pull them close. Texas simply wouldnt let them. Holmes had a key 3-pointer and followed it with another tough layup. Demarcus Holland had the task of guarding Wiggins most of the game and despite giving up six inches, did a masterful job of frustrating the freshman into a rough shooting night. Wiggins fouled out with just over two minutes left, ending a 2-for-12 performance from the field. Holland also grabbed a team-high 11 rebonds. "I tried to box him out every opportunity," Holland said. "Cam and Prince were scaring him and he was settling for jump shots."

Wilson shortly after the Hall of Fame owner died in March.And wonder of wonders, look at them now. The Bills (5-3) are entering their bye week firmly in the AFC playoff picture after showing newfound resolve, overcoming a rash of injuries, yet another quarterback shuffle and several last-minute deficits.Ralph is looking out for us, Jackson said. Im not one to shy away from that. Hes putting us in the right places. He is with us.How else to explain whats gone right for a franchise that has struggled staying relevant during a 14-season playoff drought — the NFLs longest active streak — and nine straight years without a winning record.Buffalos encouraging start follows a tumultuous off-season during which Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer, and Wilsons death raised concerns about the franchise potentially relocating under new ownership.By September, those fears melted away.On Sept. 4, doctors informed Kelly he was cancer-free after completing chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Five days later, the Bills long-term future in western New York was secured after Wilsons estate agreed to sell the franchise for an NFL-record $1.4 billion to NHL Buffalo Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula.Yeah, it was a crazy time there, a lot of uncertainty, Jackson recalled. And with all that settled, now its just about going and playing football.The Bills have been resilient going about their on-field business, riding the crest of a momentous wave. Three of their wins have been decided on their final offensive possession.That includes Buffalo overcoming a 14-0 deficit to beat the Lions 17-14 on Dan Carpenters 58-yard field goal with 4 seconds left. It came in the Bills final game under the Wilson familys ownership, and in Wilsons hometown of Detroit, no less.Not even a laser-pointing fan in the Ford Field stands could distract them.Like some magic energy or something? coach Doug Marrone said, when asked whether Buffalos streak of good fortune is coincidental.dddddddddddd. Im probably the worst person to ask that question only because for me, its right there. I need to have a sense of blinders and realism to all the things that we have to do.Marrones job is far from done as Buffalo prepares to open the second half hosting Kansas City on Nov. 9, followed by a division game at Miami four days later.Buffalo has not made the playoffs the previous three times it hit the midpoint of the season with a winning record, including 2011, when the team turned a 5-3 start into a 6-10 finish.Defensive tackle Kyle Williams has been around for two of those collapses, and believes this team is built to reverse that trend.The way this team responds is mostly what I think is different, Williams said. When the going gets tough or when things seem like theyve turned against this team, the response has been strong.The Bills strength remains their defence, which has a league-leading 28 sacks and 12 interceptions.Their offence has found focus since 10-year journeyman quarterback Kyle Orton took over after second-year starter EJ Manuel was benched following a 2-2 start.Orton has quickly established chemistry with Buffalos young group of receivers, led by Sammy Watkins. The rookie first-round pick has emerged as the teams top threat at a time Buffalos running attack has been severely slowed by injuries.Jackson is expected to miss two more weeks with a groin injury, while C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is not eligible to return until Week 16.At 33, Jackson is itching to return, knowing this just might be his last and best shot at helping the Bills secure a playoff spot.Oh man, this is a great opportunity for us right now, Jackson said. I like the momentum that we have, and I want to be a part of it.Four years ago, when the Bills were entering their bye week at 0-7, Wilson told The Associated Press he anticipated it would take another three to four years for his team to become a contender.Its going to take time, Wilson said. Im patient for the fans of Buffalo. I probably wont be around, but they will be. And I hope we can get it done.In some ways, thanks to Wilson, the Bills are halfway home.___AP NFL website: and Cheap Warriors Jerseys Authentic Cavaliers Jerseys Cheap Spurs Store Celtics Jerseys Online Cheap Bulls Jerseys Cheap Nets Jerseys Cheap Thunder Jerseys Cheap 76ers Jerseys Cheap Knicks Jerseys Wholesale Raptors Jerseys Cyber Monday Pistons Jerseys Wholesale Team USA Basketball Jerseys Cheap Celtics Jerseys Cheap Nets Jerseys Cheap Knicks Jerseys Cheap 76ers Jerseys Raptors Jerseys From China Cheap Bulls Jerseys Cavaliers Jerseys From China Wholesale Pistons Jerseys Bucks Jerseys From China Pacers Jerseys Outlet Authentic Hawks Jerseys Cheap Hornets Jerseys Cheap Heat Jerseys Cheap Magic Jerseys Authentic Wizards Jerseys Cheap Nuggets Jerseys Timberwolves Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Thunder Jerseys Cheap Blazers Jerseys Cheap Jazz Jerseys Discount Warriors Jerseys Wholesale Clippers Jerseys Wholesale Lakers Jerseys Cheap Suns Jerseys Cheap Kings Jerseys Discount Mavericks Jerseys Authentic Rockets Jerseys Discount Grizzlies Jerseys Cheap Pelicans Jerseys Spurs Jerseys From China ' ' '
