Kansas Basketball: Jayhawks Move Up to No. 6 in Latest AP Poll

Kansas continues to move up the polls following a brutal non-conference schedule that left the Jayhawks sitting in the low teens with four losses.  The good news is that those games have apprently been invaluable in preparing this young team for the gauntlet that has been Big 12 play.

The Jayhawks started out with five games against five teams that were ranked at the time, are currently ranked now, or have been ranked during the season.  The Jayhawks are growing up right before our eyes and the National attention has been building.  This week presents a pair of tough games and there is no rest during league play.  Two wins won't be easy, but if Kansas can pull it off they'll be sitting at 8-0 and climbing.
