Jayhawks won't celebrate Big 12 title just yet |

“I’m really proud of them (players). They know I am, but I probably don’t say it enough publicly,” Self said. “That is a pretty special group of kids. To be 9-4 after nonconference and be 13-2 right now (is impressive). I don’t think we should be satisfied or giddy or anything like that. I do think sometimes in our profession — I’m more guilty of it maybe than most — you don’t take time to enjoy some things that are good feats. Not just winning 10 in a row, but being in a situation where these young kids, in a year the league is the most competitive it’s been maybe since we’ve been here, top to bottom ... To have a three-game lead with three to play is a pretty great feat for a bunch of kids just trying to figure it out.”

The truth is, Tharpe says, he doesn’t know how to play any other way. When he was a point guard at Brewster, one of the top prep schools in the country, the roster was loaded with future pros. He played alongside Thomas Robinson and Syracuse standout C.J. Fair. Iowa State senior star Melvin Ejim came off the bench. And yet, Tharpe was never shy about taking the big shot.

“Clearly we know what’s staring us in the face right now, with three (regular-season games) left and needing to win some in the (Big 12) tournament to be NIT eligible right now,” Henrickson said. “And we look in the mirror on that one. That’s us. We did that.”
