“Coach (Bill) Self shot it straight to me. We talked about how he sees me if I decided to go to Kansas and just how everything works at Kansas,” Dorsey told Jayhawkslant.com. “I really like the atmosphere at Kansas and I like what coach Self had to say to me during our visit. The campus life is great and Kansas is obviously a great basketball program. I’ve never seen anything like Allen Fieldhouse before. It was pretty wild and crazy,” Dorsey added.

“It’s not that long-term stuff,” said Bowen when asked how he handled the psychology of going back out on the road. “It’s day-to-day. It’s taking care of whatever is six inches in front of your face and getting that part of it done. If you keep doing things right and keep doing them right over and over and over, then usually success follows.”

Big questions one month from the opening of college basketball season - ESPN

Kansas could have a team that will challenge for the national title. The Jayhawks are deeper than they were a season ago, possibly quicker and may have more versatility.

 

 

They don't have a baseline shot-blocker like Joel Embiid and they may not have a player who could go for 30 like Andrew Wiggins. But they must have a go-to player when needed, right?

Nothing like putting out a midseason all-conference team, and then having the same people who picked the team talk about who they snubbed.
