Oklahoma State became the first team to sweep Bill Self in his 15 seasons at Kansas, as the Cowboys closed the regular season with an 82-64 beating of the No. 6 Jayhawks at Gallagher Iba Arena. Only one KU player, senior point guard Devonte’ Graham, scored in double figures. Graham’s 4-for-14 shooting gave him a team-high 15 points in the final Big 12 road game of his four-year career.

Kansas basketball coach Bill Self laments' the Jayhawks' competitiveness following an 82-64 loss at Oklahoma State in the regular-season finale.
Sometimes when Kansas sophomore Udoka Azubuike steps onto the basketball court, his 7-foot, 280-pound frame is too immense for opponents to handle.

The question: Do you think Oklahoma State is worthy of a spot in the upcoming NCAA Tournament? By Matt Tait
