Tyshawn Taylor scored 27 points, Thomas Robinson added 17 points and 11 rebounds and No. 3 Kansas claimed the Big 12 title outright by beating Oklahoma State 70-58 on Monday night.

Taylor scored 10 straight points in the final 5 minutes to close
it out, ensuring that the Jayhawks (25-5, 15-2) wouldn't suffer a
similar fate as in their last two visits to Gallagher-Iba.

Unranked Oklahoma State teams had upset top 5 Kansas teams in
2008 and 2010 but there was a different script this time.

Keiton Page hit seven 3-pointers and scored 29 points in his
final home game for the Cowboys (14-16, 7-10) and Brian Williams
added 20 points but Kansas was able to withstand every charge to
close out another championship.

The Jayhawks outscored short-handed OSU 34-8 in the paint and
shot 52 percent.
