In a highly unexpected development, No. 3 seed Kansas and No. 10 West Virginia will meet Friday night in a Big 12 tournament semifinal that will be billed as a rematch of last year’s tourney final.
Devon Dotson scored 17 points, Dedric Lawson 16, David McCormack 13 and Quentin Grimes 12 on Thursday night as the Jayhawks followed the Mountaineers’ shocking 79-74 victory over No. 2 seed Texas Tech with a 65-57 victory over No. 6 seed Texas in a Big 12 quarterfinal contest at the Sprint Center.
The Jayhawks (24-8) and Mountaineers (14-19), who split this year’s season series, will meet in Friday’s semifinal at approximately 8:30 p.
