For the last dozen years, Kansas basketball has dominated the Big 12. They’ve been crowned conference champs each of those years and are hoping to tie a NCAA record 13 consecutive conference titles this year. That record is held by the UCLA Bruins from 1967-1979.
And while the Kansas squad will be first to tell you that they underperformed last year, losing in the Elite 8 to Villanova, they’ll also be first to tell you that their new Big XII championship rings are super-duper dope.
The upcoming season looks good for the Jayhawks and their chances of making it a bakers dozen of conference championships are high. Both Josh Jackson, a 6-foot-7 freshman combo-guard, and Devonte Grahm, a junior who had a breakout season last year under coach Bill Self, are expected to be key contributors.
Kansas opens its season against Indiana on November 1st and plays Duke in Madison Square Garden on Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. Both games will be aired on ESPN.
