Ochai Agbaji missed two 3-point attempts on the last Kansas possession before Bryce Williams stole an inbounds pass and raced the length of the floor for a game-ending dunk, the last of 37 fastbreak points for the Cowboys (9-3, 3-3 Big 12).
The Jayhawks (10-3, 4-2) had roared back from a 16-point deficit, using a 21-2 blitz to go up 70-67 with 1:20 remaining on a jumper in the lane from David McCormack, whose double-double included season bests of 24 points and 12 rebounds.
