Top-seeded KU was knocked out of the Big 12 Tournament today by the Baylor Bears, 71-64. The Bears were lead by LaceDarius Dunn's 24-points, while KU's Sherron Collins was held to 16 points on 6-for-20 shooting.

KU center Matt Kleinmann fell to his knees screaming and had to be restrained from gouging his own eyes out.
