COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Proving on the road that the February swoon is out of its system, Kansas University went on the road and clinched at least a share of its fourth straight Big 12 regular season title Saturday at Texas A&M, 72-55. KU finishes at 28-3 overall in the regular season, and 13-3 in conference play. With that mark, KU can be no lower than the No. 2 seed at next week’s Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City’s Sprint Center. If Texas defeats Oklahoma State in Austin Sunday, KU will take the No. 2 seed, playing at 6:00 p.m. in the quarterfinals Friday. If OSU should win, KU will draw the top seed and play at 11:30 a.m. Friday.
