FORT WORTH, Texas — Garlon Green scored 20 points and Texas Christian stunned fifth-ranked Kansas 62-55 on Wednesday to earn its first Big 12 Conference win of the season.

The Jayhawks (19-3, 7-2 Big 12), coming off a loss four days earlier against Oklahoma State, have their first losing streak in more than seven years. They had played 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses, the longest active streak in NCAA Division I.

TCU (10-12, 1-8) never trailed in the game, which marked the midpoint of its conference schedule in its first Big 12 season, also the first season for new coach Trent Johnson.

Kansas, which has won or shared 12 of the 16 regular-season Big 12 titles since the league started, didn't score its first points until more than 7 minutes into the game. The Jayhawks finished with their fewest points in nearly six years.

Ben McLemore led Kansas with 15 points.

In Piscataway, N.J., Wayne Blackshear scored a career-high 19 points and hit a 3-pointer to ignite a 23-2 run in the second half that carried Louisville (19-4, 7-3 Big East) past Rutgers (12-9, 3-7).

Russ Smith added 14 points and six rebounds and fellow guard Peyton Siva had nine points and seven assists as the Cardinals won their third consecutive game by holding Rutgers to a season-low point total.

In East Lansing, Mich., Gary Harris scored 15 points and Keith Appling added 14 points before leaving the game with an injury to help Michigan State (19-4 8-2 Big Ten) bounce back from a poor first half to beat Minnesota (17-6, 5-5).

Appling left the court with 1:17 left, holding his right shoulder after getting tied up with Joe Coleman. He returned to the bench in the final minute.
