Although Kansas is used to living in the Top 10 in strength of schedule year after year, these Jayhawks (17-1 overall, 6-0 Big 12) have not made it there quite yet. Outside of back-to-back, season-opening games against then-No. 7 Indiana (now unranked) and then-No. 1 Duke (now 18th), KU’s schedule has not carried its usual pop.
Though it seems KU has been allowing more layups this season, opponents’ two-point percentage is exactly the same as it was a season ago. Instead, Kansas’ opponents are shooting a higher percentage from three-point range, and that difference appears to be the biggest reason for the team taking a step back defensively.
“I know a lot of people have been waiting, but you’ll see, it’s coming. The Carlton is about to come that you guys have been waiting for. I’m having good practices consistently, just trying to carry it over into the game. Once I get going, no stopping me,” Bragg added in a seven-minute interview session with media members before practice at Allen Fieldhouse.
For as gaudy as Ellis’ numbers were, Kansas never made it past the Elite Eight with him. That’s fine for almost every other program, but not KU. With a new small-ball approach, Kansas is thinking bigger this year. Don’t be surprised if it takes them all the way.
