Jackson, who shot 3-of-6 behind the 3-point line, added seven assists and five rebounds for the Bears (10-4, 2-0 Big 12) as they picked up their second straight win and the fifth in six games. Cory Jefferson added 17 points and eight boards, Isaiah Austin 17 points and Brady Heslip 11, while Rico Gathers accounted for seven points and a game-high 11 rebounds off the bench for the visitors.
