Though a winning streak dating back to the second week of November appeared in jeopardy, No. 2-ranked Kansas basketball redeemed itself after a shaky first half at Oklahoma Tuesday night, securing 14th-year head coach Bill Self his 400th victory with the Jayhawks, in an 81-70 comeback win.

The milestones keep coming for Kansas basketball this season, and while head coach Bill Self likely won’t make much of this one, a victory from his No. 2-ranked Jayhawks (14-1 overall, 3-0 Big 12) at Oklahoma would give him his 400th coaching victory with KU. More importantly, a win on the home court of the Sooners (6-8, 0-3) would keep Kansas undefeated in conference play and extend the team’s winning streak, which began for the Jayhawks in November against Duke.
