Inspired by Jayhawk uniforms of the 1950s, adidas and Kansas Athletics will unveil special uniforms next week to honor Black History Month. The Jayhawks will first wear the road outfits at Baylor Tuesday, Feb. 23, and will don the home uniforms against Texas Tech Saturday, Feb. 27.
Six different Jayhawks reached double figures and Kansas showed on multiple occasions that it had enough in its take to squash any thoughts of an Oklahoma State upset or comeback, exacting revenge on the Cowboys for a 19-point OSU victory in Stillwater in mid-January.
“I was thinking, ‘I want to pass.’ As soon as I stepped to the free throw line, the lane was open. I was like, ‘I’m going to keep going,’’’ Diallo stated. “I said, ‘Let me go.’ It was too late, but my mind said, ‘Go, go, just go,’ but it was too late. That’s why I missed it,” Diallo added.
Nobody has as many top-50 RPI wins as Kansas. And the Jayhawks only have one loss to a school ranked lower than 11th in the Top 25 (and one). And that, among other reasons, is why Bill Self's team is ranked No. 1 in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
"I'm really going to miss Kansas," Kubiak said. "And I'm kind of jealous that I won't be here for all of the good times that are ahead. I just really appreciate everything David has done for me personally and professionally. I had no intention of leaving. It just kind of came up and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go be with family. But it definitely wasn't an easy thing to do."
During Dockery's senior season at Kansas she helped the Jayhawks advance to the program's first-ever NCAA Final Four appearance while becoming the first Jayhawk to play in four-straight NCAA tournaments.

It happened last season. Baseball Prospectus' well-known PECOTA system pegged the Royals to win 72 games. Pretty much every stat-based outlet had them with a losing record and nearly everyone (myself included) had them missing the playoffs.
