AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Devon Dotson returned from a hip injury to score 21 points and lead No. 6 Kansas over Texas 66-57. Dotson scored the Jayhawks' final seven points of the game.

He made a long 3-pointer with just under 3 minutes left and then closed out the victory with four straight free throws in the final 39 seconds.
