Nine lives? KU players reflect on their bid for another Big 12 title -
When the Jayhawks take the floor at Baylor on Saturday night, they will be well aware of their situation: If K-State loses earlier in the day at Oklahoma State, KU clinches a share of the title and the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 tournament by virtue of sweeping the Wildcats in the regular season. A K-State loss and a KU win would give the Jayhawks the title outright. But if K-State wins, KU will have the added burden of needing a road victory to lock up a share of the title and keep its Big 12 regular-season championship streak alive at nine.
