“It's good. I mean, it's good that no matter what happens, you know, the guys haven't panicked,” Self said on the subject of KU winning after trailing by double figures. “It's bad that we’ve put ourselves in a position to be behind in some of those deficits, but when you're playing in a league that is as balanced as our league, I don't think that's totally unusual.”
KU coach Bill Self on Thursday likened Mykhailiuk’s recent shooting struggles — 8-of-29 from 3-point range in his last seven games, 3-of-18 in his last five — to that of a hitting slump in baseball.
The Jayhawks’ schedule-adjusted offensive efficiency is the top mark in Self’s 14 seasons in Lawrence. And while college offenses are better as a whole this year compared to seasons past, KU’s offense still ranks in the top five nationally — something that’s happened only four times in Self’s tenure.
If the Jayhawks indeed approach their 31st game of the season as they have their first 30, it likely means senior guard Frank Mason will remain on pace to break the team’s minutes per game record under Self. Mason is currently at 36.1 minutes per game, a full minute ahead of the mark set by Sherron Collins in 2008-09.
Kansas basketball coach Bill Self has been named one of 10 national semifinalists for the 2017 Werner Ladder Naismith Men's College Coach of the Year, the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced Friday morning. Self won the honor in 2012 and has been a finalist seven times.

Chipman had announced he would retire after the season. He was honored after Washburn won its first-round tournament game Tuesday in Topeka and finishes with 808 career victories, a national championship and a national runner-up finish in 38 seasons as head coach.
Illinois John Groce and Kansas State's Bruce Weber are perfect examples.
Somehow, simply saying Alabama has signed the best class in the country seven years in a row doesn’t fully explain how dominant the Tide have been on the recruiting trail during that span.
“I’m sorry for the choice of words,” Mulkey said Thursday as she fought back tears. “The timing wasn’t good. Poor analogy maybe, as well. For those of you who know me, I’m an emotional person. I coach with emotion. I played with emotion, and it was an emotional moment. I guess you’d say it got the best of me because I really do love this place."
