For the third year in a row, Kansas will meet Texas in the Big 12's championship game.
Brandon Rush scored a career-high 28 (hitting 9 of 13 shots from the field) in the Jayhawks' 77-71 win over Texas A&M.
Darnell Jackson (14 points) was the only other player in double figures for KU, which outscored the Aggies 43-37 in the second half.
Bryan Davis led a balanced Texas A&M effort with 16 points and helped the Aggies rally from as many as eight down in the second half. A&M pulled within two on a pair of Dominique Kirk free throws with a minute left.
