Oklahoma tops Kansas to end Jayhawks’ run of Big 12 titles

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Kristian Doolittle had 24 points and 11 rebounds to help Oklahoma beat No. 13 Kansas 81-68 on Tuesday night and end the Jayhawks’ run of Big 12 regular-season titles at 14 years.

The last time Kansas didn’t at least tie for the conference crown, Oklahoma State won it outright in 2003-04. Now, Kansas State and Texas Tech remain in contention for the championship.

Brady Manek scored 21 points and Rashard Odomes added 12 for Oklahoma (19-11, 7-10 Big 12), which boosted its chances of earning an NCAA Tournament bid.

Dedric Lawson, the Big 12’s leading scorer, had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Kansas (22-8, 11-6).

David McCormack added 18 points for the Jayhawks.

Manek scored 10 early points to help the Sooners roll out to a 23-7 lead. Kansas crept back into the game, but the Sooners led 41-28 at halftime.
