The Jayhawks (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) have won 15-straight games, while Oklahoma (6-9, 0-4) remains in search of its first conference victory a year advancing to the Final Four.
"I can’t read him," Self said of Mason, who Tuesday passed Wilt Chamberlain on KU’s all-time scoring list. "And if you think you can, you’re only kidding yourself. Because nobody can. He’s a unique guy. He’s stone-faced. He doesn’t show a lot of emotion. But you could tell there was something different about him in the second half."
"We talked in the huddle about how there were no nine-point plays," Jackson said. "We didn’t know how fast we were gonna come back, but we knew we were gonna do it."
The Jayhawks are at 42 percent, which is third nationally behind only UCLA and Kennesaw State. Through four Big 12 games, they’ve made 45 percent of their threes … with no other conference team shooting better than 39 percent.

Something incredible happened in college basketball on Tuesday night. People stormed the court after beating Baylor. I believe that is a first in the history of the sport.
The Seminoles, who are Final Four good, start 4-0 in the ACC for the first time in their history.
"It's my fault and I got to do a better job at helping them in the game and executing," Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said.
(Mr. Ed says: In case you missed it, Bruce Weber (or the KSU bench?) got a T with like 5 seconds left in the game. Tech hit the free throws, and KSU nailed a buzzer-beater to lose by just 1 point after leading the entire second half. I haven't checked, but I'm guessing BOTC is either in full meltdown mode or full conspiracy mode. Maybe both.)
When Alabama scored to take a 31-28 lead, Wynn sportsbook director John Avello saw two minutes on the clock and got a sick feeling. Just as he feared, Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson led the winning touchdown drive, cashing every Tigers money line wager in one of the biggest-bet games in college football history.
