After LaceDarius Dunn hit two free throws to get Baylor within a basket, Abrams dribbled inside the 3-pointer line with just under a minute to play and hit a jumper.
The Longhorns (15-4, 4-1 Big 12) are 23-0 against Baylor in their 11 seasons under coach Rick Barnes. Baylor (15-5, 3-3) last win in the series came in 1998.
Abrams matched the Big 12 record with his 338th career 3-pointer, his third of the game coming only 14:35 into the game. He didn't make another one, leaving him tied with Jeff Boschee, who played at Kansas from 1999-2002.
The game was tied 13 times, but the 13th and final lead change came when Gary Johnson was credited with a basket when Kevin Rogers was called for goaltending with 4:20 left to make it 64-62. Dogus Balbay had a breakaway layup on the next possession after a Baylor miss.
No. 16 Purdue 64, Wisconsin 63
against slumping Wisconsin.
It was the fifth straight win for the Boilermakers (16-4, 5-2 Big Ten), including two straight on the road - and the fifth straight loss for a Badgers team that suddenly can't even defend its home court.
E'Twaun Moore scored 17 to lead the Boilermakers. Keaton Nankivil scored a career-high 21 for Wisconsin (12-8, 3-5), which lost its fifth straight game and second consecutive home game - a first during coach Bo Ryan's eight seasons.
With Purdue trailing 58-57, Hummel came off a screen to hit a wide-open 3 near the top of the key with a minute left on the clock.
Mississippi 85, No. 24 Kentucky 80
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Terrico White and David Huertas each scored 21 points and Mississippi snapped the Wildcats' five-game win streak a day after they entered the Top 25 for the first time this season.
Neither Kentucky's Jodie Meeks nor Huertas - the Southeastern Conference's Nos. 1 and 3 scorers - managed a field goal in the first half. But Huertas hit a 3-pointer with 11 seconds gone in the second half and the injury-depleted Rebels (11-9, 2-4 SEC) managed to overcome 24 points from Patrick Patterson for a rare win over the Wildcats (16-5, 5-1).
The win snapped Ole Miss' current three-game losing streak and its nine-game slide to Kentucky. It was just the 12th win for the Rebels in 107 games against the Wildcats.
