It’s not just the Jayhawks’ ability to understand and execute traditional roles of starter versus reserve or veteran versus rookie that has made this team click. The Jayhawks also have done an impressive job of spreading the wealth when it comes to the role of big-shot maker, especially when answering an opponent’s run.

The beat goes on in Lawrence. The 50-game winning streak in Allen Fieldhouse. The 151 consecutive weeks in the AP poll. The 253 home sellouts in a row. The march toward a 13th consecutive Big 12 title. Nothing unusual to see here. Kansas is 18-1 – for the sixth time under Self. But nothing may come easy this season.
