Kansas was coming off an 81-69 loss Saturday at surging Texas.

Baylor was within 49-44 midway through the second half and Wiggins had just shot and missed the rim.

But the Bears missed three free throws on the same possession. Then, with Baylor students chanting “Air Ball!, Air Ball!”, Wiggins swished a 3-pointer from the right wing. Wiggins scored again on the next possession to push the lead to 54-44, and had the next basket as well with a dunk with 7:49 left.

Brady Heslip had 12 points on four 3-pointers, but didn’t score again after his last gave Baylor a 22-21 lead with 6:34 left in the first half.

“They’re just tough, they’re physical. They play great defense and they know their identity, so they make it tougher,” Heslip said. “But we didn’t make enough shots to win against them tonight, either.”
