LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Jared Butler scored 22 points, MaCio Teague added 16 and fourth-ranked Baylor smothered No. 3 Kansas in a 67-55 victory on Saturday, the first for the Bears in 18 tries on the hallowed hardwood of Allen Fieldhouse. Freddie Gillespie added 13 points for the Bears (13-1, 3-0 Big 12), who snapped a whole slew of ignominious streaks with its victory in Lawrence: They beat a top-five team on the road for the first time in 22 attempts, won their fifth consecutive game against a ranked team for the first time in school history and, perhaps most importantly, beat Kansas (12-3, 2-1)  in their personal house of horrors for the first time since the building opened in 1966. Isaiah Moss led the Jayhawks with 15 points.
