Tharpe learning what it takes to play point guard for KU's Self -

This is life as Bill Self's point guard. All season long, Tharpe says, Self will ride you. He will poke and challenge ... and he will praise. Self admits he’s toughest on his point guards, but he’s also the most flexible. His guards get offensive freedom. They get the keys to a blue-blood program. And over time, they gain the most valuable tool of all: Self’s trust.

“There’s no animosity in the locker room,” Black said. “Everybody loves each other and wants to see each other shine. One through five, we want to see each other perform at the highest level. We want to win together. I’ve not heard of too many teams winning that don’t have good chemistry. You have to have a bond, at least a situation where everybody wants to win. We have a situation we actually like each other and want to win.”

“We'll be ready,” Self said. “It's not every day you get a chance to clinch at least a piece of a championship at home. I think our guys will certainly put forth the concentration to give us the best chance to do that.”

“He hasn’t probably done what he thought he could do from a numbers standpoint or a production standpoint. Still yet, he’s finding a way to impact this team,” Self said. “I think that mental toughness in that regard is as impressive as anything else.”
