Bowen: KU not focused on Big 12 race |

However, should the Jayhawks find a way to spring an upset in one of their final three games, that likely would play a huge role in the way the Big 12 race plays out.

The Year After has arrived in college basketball ... so now what? - ESPN

For Wichita State, waking up means integrating eight new players as quickly as possible, replacing almost all of last season's trademark rebounding in one fell swoop.
