The No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks knocked off unranked Texas Tech this afternoon to clinch at least a share of what would be a 12th straight Big 12 regular season title for the program.
The Big 12 in general has been highly competitive this season, with Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa State and West Virginia showing great potential, but Kansas has managed to rule the roost once again. Against the Red Raiders, Kansas’ balanced attack and lockdown defense led to Texas Tech making just 31.6 percent of its shot attempts. To give a better idea of how strong Kansas was, sophomore reserve guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk led all Jayhawks with 17 points.
And nobody seemed more excited about the win than Kansas guard Wayne Selden, who posted the following to Instagram.
Next for the Jayhawks is, hopefully, a long NCAA Tournament run after the Big 12 Tournament next month, where Kansas has only advanced past the Round of 32 under Bill Self seven times in 13 years. Given how strong the Jayhawks look this year, however, a deep run is definitely a possibility.
