 AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Ben McLemore scored 16 points and No. 4 Kansas stormed back from a late double-digit deficit to stun Texas 64-59 on Saturday for its 15th straight win.
Jeff Withey added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Jayhawks (16-1, 4-0 Big 12), who trailed by 11 points in the second half before McLemore steered a rally that prevented the reeling Longhorns (8-9, 0-4) from a badly needed victory in this troubled season.
Travis Releford added 12 points for Kansas.
Sheldon McClennan led the Longhorns with 18 points. Texas has lost four straight, its longest losing streak since coach Rick Barnes' first season in 1998-99.

No. 7 ARIZONA 71, ARIZONA STATE 54
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Mark Lyons scored 24 points and Nick Johnson added 19 as Arizona pulled away in the second half.
Arizona (16-1, 4-1 Pac-12) went on the decisive run after Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson picked up his fourth foul midway through the second half. Solomon Hill added 13 points for the Wildcats, who scored 18 points off turnovers and outscored the Sun Devils by 14 inside.
Arizona State (14-4, 3-2) never recovered after Arizona's run, thanks to 17 turnovers and a quiet game by second-leading scorer Carrick Felix, who had 5 points on 1-of-8 shooting.
Carson had 22 points and four assists, and Evan Gordon added 14 points for the Sun Devils.

No. 10 FLORIDA 83, No. 17 MISSOURI 52
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Scottie Wilbekin had 13 points and 10 assists, his first career double-double, for Florida.
The victory was coach Billy Donovan's 400th with the Gators, making him the third coach in Southeastern Conference history to accomplish that feat with the same school. He joined Kentucky's Adolph Rupp and LSU's Dale Brown in the 400-win club.
Erik Murphy scored 15 points despite playing with a broken finger for the Gators (14-2, 4-0 SEC), who won their sixth straight, and Kenny Boynton added 14.
Wilbekin did a strong defensive job on Missouri point guard Phil Pressey, who finished with two points on 1-of-7 shooting with 10 turnovers and six assists.
Jabari Brown led the Tigers (13-4, 2-2) with 16 points.
