I’ve watched KU basketball for years and they’re almost always really good…
Now they’re GREAT!
I think this is the best overall squad KU coach Bill Self has ever coached.
This team is dynomite, explosive and fast.
The 3 point shots come from everywhere, all the time – and they hit!
KU has likely player of the year Frank Mason and likely NBA No. 1 or 2 pick Josh Jordon.
What impresses me most is this team’s fearlessness.
They will shoot the 3 at the end of a game without hesitation or passing the ball. This Kansas team deserves to be ranked No. 1 in the nation and they ARE the No. 1, No. 1 seed for March Madness.
Kansas has been a one seed six times in the last 10 years, a number two seed three times and a number three seed once.
KU has the most conference wins in NCAA history with 60.
They fall short on championships – national championships.
With all that noise KU’s only been in the Final Four twice in the last decade under Bill. This feels like Bill’s year though and he could win it all. That said, it does take a bit of luck.
Funny, I don’t feel KU will win the Big 12 tournament.
Here’s why: it doesn’t matter much, just pride for them. I can see them losing to Baylor or West Virginia or even Iowa State in the finals. Their eye is on the big prize, NATIONAL CHAMPS.
It should be, they are the best out there today.
Bill Self will go into the Hall of Fame in April and hopefully get to this year’s Final Four. KU’s earned it.
