Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 2.13.12

Nice weekend away, ready to get back to it with Kansas State tonight. This is a dangerous game and a very key game for this team. I didn't get to watch Saturday but it sounds like the first half was one of those 'if this team plays like that' halves and the second half was a 'what happened' moment. Here's hoping that second half was a wake up call and reminds this group that you can't take the foot off the gas. On to Manhattan.

Jayhawks surpass coach Bill Self’s expectations -
Surpassed everyone's I would imagine. Would ANYONE have guessed that we would be in the convo for a top seed this year after losing what we did? I know we say it a lot but this is truly one of the better coaching jobs and we've been extremely fortunate to have a NPOY candidate that could lose out on the Big 12 POY award to a teammate.

Stars have come out vs. Kansas, but K-State wants team effort -
The last two times Kansas State beat Kansas on the basketball court, it had an elite scorer to lean on. K-State is hoping for a similar outcome when Kansas comes to Bramlage Coliseum tonight, but the Wildcats may have to use a different method to get there.
