Austin, TX – Quincy Acy carried Baylor to a comeback win, fought 77-72 victory over in-state rival Texas.
Acy made up for poor shooting performances by Jackson and Perry Jones III by totaling 22 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. Jackson wound up with 25 points behind a 12-for-12 effort at the foul line for Baylor (23-5, 10-5 Big 12), which had lost three of four coming in.
Jackson and Jones went a combined 8-of-28 (29 percent) from the floor, but the Bears shot 50 percent from the field and 6-of-9 from three-point range in the second half to overcome a 10-point deficit at halftime.
J'Covan Brown made six three-pointers en route to an 18-point effort to lead Texas (17-11, 7-8). The Longhorns were trying to add a signature win to their flimsy NCAA Tournament resume, but dropped their second straight on the heels of a four-game win streak.
