Kansas (15-2, 4-1) currently resides at #3 in the AP and Coaches Polls. The Jayhawks are coming off a 70-63 win at home against TCU.

Oklahoma State (9-8, 1-4) comes in unranked. The Cowboys are coming off a 74-69 loss to Texas in Austin. After opening the conference slate with a 21-point win over TCU, OSU has suffered blowout losses to Baylor and West Virginia to go along with narrow losses to OU and Texas.

TCU is coached by Travis Ford for now who is 152-99 in his 8th season with the Cowboys. Ford is 342-245 in his 19th season overall. Stops on Ford's resume include Campbellsville (NAIA), Eastern Kentucky, and UMass.

Kansas holds a 110-56 advantage on OSU in the all-time series. However, the Jayhawks are only 35-33 against the Cowboys in Stillwater, and the schools are equal in Gallagher-Iba, 33-33. OSU has won the last two matchups in Gallagher-Iba, which means they can tie Texas Tech and West Virginia for consecutive home wins against Bill Self's Jayhawks with 3.

Bill Self is 14-10 all-time against OSU, including 13-7 while at KU. Self is 3-5 in Gallagher-Iba as an opposing coach.

With the win on Saturday, Kansas is now 18-10 under Bill Self when ranked #1 in the AP Poll.

Perry Ellis moved past Mark Randall to #15 on the all-time rebounding list during the TCU game.

Diallo's five blocks against TCU were the most by a Jayhawk this year.
