Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes: 2.12.18

Kansas Falls From First Place in Big 12

Texas Tech looks to end the Jayhawks’ streak. Let’s start out with the obvious: That was a disappointing performance by the Jayhawks on Saturday. Kansas couldn’t shoot, was careless with the ball, and couldn’t stay out of foul trouble. The funk the team is in right now cost the Jayhawks the lead in the Big 12, at least for the moment. And while there are plenty of negatives to...

Bears stomp Jayhawks 80-64

KU scored just 0.67 points per possession in the first half (note: that’s bad) en route to a 30-20 halftime deficit. In fact, KU had more turnovers...

No. 10 Kansas tries to clear another Big 12 hurdle at Baylor

Kansas coach Bill Self knows he's responsible for the impossibly high expectations of the Jayhawks' basketball program.

In December, Self said the Jayhawks were soft...

Ochai Agbaji Picks Kansas

The Oak Park High star out of KCMO will don the crimson and blue. Kansas City native Ochai Agbaji has picked the Jayhawks. He is currently rated as a 3-star wing in the 247 Composite, and although he is ranked outside the top 300 nationally, he is definitely a late bloomer, having picked up offers from Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Oregon, Oklahoma State, and Nebraska in the last two...
