LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas’ basketball team remains unstoppable at home when featured on ESPN’s Big Monday broadcast.

Thanks in large part to Texas native Marcus Garrett, who scored a career-high 20 points (17 in the first half), the No. 7-ranked Jayhawks downed Texas 80-78 on Monday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Lagerald Vick led the way with 21 points and Dedric Lawson and Devon Dotson had 17 and 10 apiece as the Jayhawks (15-2, 4-1), who cashed 11 3-pointers to Texas’ 13, improved to 27-0 in home Big Monday contests during the 16-year Bill Self era.
