What Bill Self said about West Virginia, Big 12 race
The Jayhawks have already fallen to the Mountaineers once this year. At the time, West Virginia was 0-5 in Big 12 play. The game between the two teams was tied in Morgantown heading to the halftime break, but the Jayhawks actually led for a good chunk of the second half before giving the game away late.

New starting role doesn't mean David McCormack trying to play like 'superstar' | Smithology | KUsports.com
It wasn’t that the 6-foot-10 forward from prep powerhouse Oak Hill Academy lacked potential. It was just that McCormack was joining what looked like a very crowded frontcourt, with 7-footer Udoka Azubuike, 6-9 forwards Dedric Lawson and Silvio De Sousa and 6-8 Mitch Lightfoot all possesing more experience than the freshman.
Making the call: Self opens up on Agbaji's redshirt decision
"If you stop and think about it, it was such a poor decision on my part to make that decision," the 16th-year KU coach said. "He went along with it with his family, thinking that he probably wouldn't have many opportunities to impact us on a gamely basis. [We chose to] go ahead and do that and not waste age 23 when you could have that instead of age 18."
