Kansas had a great run this year, but they ultimately lost to Villanova in the Final Four. Some people are saying that this was the best team that Kansas has had in a long time. Let’s take a look at their season.
The Jayhawks finished the season with a 27-7 record. They won the Big 12 regular season title for the 13th consecutive year with a 16-2 mark in conference play.

14-4 (1st in Big 12)
Kansas has been on a losing streak lately. They have lost several games in a row and their fans are beginning to worry. Some people are even calling for the coach to be fired. Kansas has a lot of talent, but they have not been able to put it all together lately. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why Kansas has been losing.
Why the losing streak?
There are a few reasons behind Kansas’ recent losing streak. One is that the team has simply been outmatched by its opponents. In the last three games, Kansas has faced teams that are a combined 27-3. Another reason is that the Jayhawks have been plagued by injuries, with key players like Udoka Azubuike and Marcus Garrett sidelined for stretches of the season. Finally, Kansas has also had some bad luck, with close losses turning into blowouts in the second half. Whatever the reasons, it’s clear that Kansas has struggled to find its footing this season.
Kansas had an excellent season this year, finishing with a record of 33-3. They won the Big 12 conference championship and made it to the Final Four, where they ultimately lost to Michigan State. Here are some of the highlights from Kansas’ incredible season.
Player of the Year
Junior Thomas Robinson was unanimously selected as the Big 12 player of the year by both the coaches and media. He averaged 17.7 points per game and 11.9 rebounds per game.
Coach of the Year
The Jayhawks have been hit hard by injuries this season, but they continue to fight. Head coach Bill Self was named Coach of the Year by the Associated Press and the Big 12 Conference.
After a disappointing season, the Kansas Jayhawks are looking to improve next year. They have a lot of young talent on the team, and they will be looking to make a run at the NCAA tournament.
