The eighth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks (21-4; 8-2) received an early Valentines Day gift from the sixth-ranked Texas A&M Aggies (21-4; 9-2) on Tuesday evening. For the second time this year, Billy Gillispie's squad lost to the Texas Tech Red Raiders (16-6; 5-6), this time falling at home, at the buzzer, 77-75. Tied atop the Big 12 standings, there's no question that the Hawks have plenty to play for when they face the Colorado Buffaloes (6-14; 2-8) at 8:00 CST tonight.

The last Colorado win in the series was a 60-59 thriller back on January 22, 2003 in Boulder. The previous CU win was a 79-71 victory on February 20, 1991, also in Boulder.
