Manu Lecomte scored eight straight points for Baylor after No. 10 and Big 12 co-leader Kansas had pulled within a basket, and the senior guard finished with 18 overall in the Bears' 80-64 upset victory Saturday.

The Jayhawks (19-6, 8-4 Big 12) trailed 30-20 at halftime after having more turnovers (nine) than made field goals (seven) before the break. They were down by as many as 13 points after that but got within 58-56 with 7:14 left after consecutive jumpers by Lagerald Vick.

Lecomte then made a jumper for Baylor (15-10, 5-7) with 6:50 left. About a minute later he took a long 3-pointer, and was slowly stepping backward watching the shot go in the basket. He then added another from long range and the Bears maintained control.

Jo Lual-Acuil had 19 points to lead Baylor, which has won three straight after a four-game losing streak. Numi Omot scored 17 and Jake Lindsey 11. Mark Vital had 11 rebounds.

Devonte Graham had 14 of his 23 points after halftime for Kansas, while Malik Newman finished with 20.
