For the first time since 2004 the Kansas Jayhawks won’t win the conference title in the Big 12. However, Bill Self is one win away from finishing the season with a perfect record at home.
Kansas was decimated by Oklahoma on Tuesday, as Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes struggled on the road. The struggles away from Lawrence have been very noticeable this year.
Regardless of all the issues plaguing the Jayhawks in 2019, the reality is that Self gets the best out of his team at home. With the Baylor Bears coming into town tomorrow, it’ll be important to finish the regular season on a positive note.
The Jayhawks are a streaky bunch, and any chance of making a run late in March starts with Dedric Lawson.
After dominating the competition at Memphis, Lawson made the decision to transfer to Kansas. His production is actually better with the Jayhawks, as he is averaging 19.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per contest.
If Kansas is going to win on Senior Night and improve to 17-0 on its home court, it’ll require another great performance from its superstar forward.
