Tristan Thompson key as Texas clips Baylor to stay perfect in Big 12
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas keeps winning. Is a return to No. 1 next?Freshman Tristan Thompson had 17 points and 13 rebounds and No. 3 Texas held off a furious rally by LaceDarius Dunn and Baylor to remain undefeated in the Big 12 with a 69-60 victory Saturday.The Longhorns have won 10 in a row. And given top-ranked Ohio State's loss to Wisconsin and the fact that Texas handed No. 2 Kansas its only loss of the season, the Longhorns could find themselves sitting at No. 1 come Monday.They hope not.

• Baylor fell to 8-2 in its past 10 games against its three in-state Big 12 opponents.

• Dunn also needs 78 points to surpass Texas Tech's Andre Emmett (2,256) as the Big 12's career scoring leader.
