AUSTIN, Texas -- Sheldon McClellan scored 23 points off the bench Texas and beat sinking Baylor 79-70 Monday night, sending the Bears to their eighth loss in 11 games.

Baylor, which fell a game short of the Final Four two of the last three seasons, came in needing to make a late push to improve its NCAA tournament chances this year but fell flat against Texas (14-16, 6-11 Big 12), having its worst season in 15 years.

Myck Kabongo scored 19 points and Ioannis Papapetrou scored 18 for Texas. Papapetrou's 3-pointer with just under 5 minutes to play stopped a Baylor rally and Julien Lewis added another in the final 2 minutes that put the Longhorns ahead 70-64.

Pierre Jackson scored 22 points to lead Baylor (17-12, 8-9).
