The Jayhawks rank 13th in assists per game (17.0) while the Wildcats rank 103rd (14.3).

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Kansas is the favorite in this game, as the Jayhawks are getting odds of -8 points against Kansas State.

Some of the Jayhawks say it was just a matter of everyone finally buying into what Self was selling.

So he made sure the Jayhawks didn’t.

Oklahoma State beat Kansas twice in Big 12 play, the first conference rival to ever sweep the Jayhawks in the 15 seasons they have been coached by Bill Self. The Cowboys trying to beat Kansas for a third time this year.

The shot missed long, giving TCU just enough time to bring the ball up the court and kick it to guard Desmond Bane in the corner.

The Cowboys had no such issues, as they passed the torch from player to player as they burned through the Sooners’ defense.

Kenrich Williams led the Horned Frogs (21-11) with 20 points.

“This is what it comes down to, the postseason”, Newman said. “But it’s in that chaotic state where you’re running back and they made a great play”. The Wildcats are now 101-28 under head coach Bruce Weber when the team holds an opponent to 69 points or less, including 15-3 this season. “Malik putting us on his back was huge”.

Kansas Basketball received bad news on Wednesday.

“It felt good”, Newman said, sitting in front of his locker after the first postseason victory of his college career. “Get a free throw, something”.

But the win meant more than that. Graham just missed a double-double in the Oklahoma State quarterfinal with 10 points and nine assists. “We shot 46 percent, and we were way up on the rebounds, but it turned the other way in the second half: they were way more physical than us, that was evident”.

“If I sleep two hours tonight it’ll be more than what I probably think I should, after how we played tonight”, said Self, who didn’t much like the energy he saw against a Kansas State team playing without its two top scorers, both injured. “From the beginning I told them before the game since practice when we got back and got going in the spring through the summer and through the fall, they worked their tails off”. But they have gone 6-12 since and now Trae Young and company could find themselves on the wrong side of the NCAA bubble.

The 9th ranked Kansas Jayhawks, who is the top-seed in the Big 12 Tournament, improved to 25-7 on the season after defeating the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 82-68, yesterday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Men’s Championship.

Kansas opened the second half with a baseline dunk from Lagerald Vick (11 points and five rebounds in 35 minutes) and never trailed in the final 20 minutes.

The Cowboys (19-13, 8-10) collected 18 offensive rebounds, from six different players, to amass a 53-27 advantage on the boards and 19 second-chance points. The Sooners did very well in the former category until late in the regular season, but failed miserably in games away from home.

Ever since OU super freshman Trae Young launched 39 shots, nearly half of the Sooners’ total shot attempts – in a January 20 overtime loss at Oklahoma State, the nation’s scoring and assist leader has taken fewer shots and is making fewer of them. He scored over Mitch Lightfoot and Silvio De Sousa, Svi Mykhailiuk and Marcus Garrett. They also have to crash the glass. “You could tell they were more exhausted”. Kansas State had a brutally weak schedule that hurt its RPI, while the Horned Frogs were just 9-9 in the league. Here are few things to know when the Jayhawks meet Kansas State in round three of the Sunflower Showdown.

As for what Newman’s focus will be heading into his encore performance against the Wildcats, that was simple. “KU is better at basketball”, Whitney Plunkett said.
