It's been a good run, but it wasn't going to last forever, especially with the terrible hand Kansas was dealt this year.


The No. 13 Jayhawks were dominated wire-to-wire by the Oklahoma Sooners, who are fighting for an NCAA Tournament bid, on Tuesday night, which ended Kansas' 14-year run as the Big 12 regular season champions (or co-champions).

​​Heck of a run by Bill Self, but this just isn't the Jayhawks' year.


From Silvio De Sousa getting banned for two years, to Lagerald Vick having to take a leave of absence for personal reasons, to Udoka Azubuike needing hand surgery, it's ben a rough go for Self and his squad.


They've been especially bad on the road this year, as evidence by their crushing losses to Texas Tech (by 29), West Virginia (in the final seconds), Iowa State (by 17) and now Oklahoma by 13.

Kansas certainly needs some success in the Big 12 tourney in order to get back on track and hope to do some damage in the Big Dance with this mix-and-match roster at the moment.


As for Oklahoma, they got a clutch win for this NCAA Tournament resume and could use a few more victories in the Big 12 Tournament to punch their ticket.
