Perfect no more: Robinson, Taylor help No. 7 Kansas end No. 3 Baylor's unbeaten start, 92-74
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) ' Thomas Robinson had 27 points and 14 rebounds, Tyshawn Taylor matched a career-high with 28 points and No. 7 Kansas rolled to a 92-74 victory over No. 3 Baylor on Monday night, ending the Bears' perfect start.
Travis Releford and Elijah Johnson added 11 points each for the Jayhawks (15-3, 5-0 Big 12), who won their 16th straight game at Allen Fieldhouse and 10th in a row at home over the Bears. Kansas is 17-2 against them all-time.
A trendy pick to end the Jayhawks' seven-year stranglehold on the conference, Baylor (17-1, 4-1) had been riding the longest winning streak in school history to its best start ever.
Perry Jones III scored 18 points, Quincy Miller had 17 and Quincy Acy added 14, but the long and lean Bears were dominated in the paint and had no answer for the combination of Robinson and Taylor, one of the best inside-outside tandems in the nation.
