Louisville, Ky. Kansas basketball coach Bill Self, as well as his players, hoped Louisville wouldn’t be their last stop of the 2015-16 season.
But Villanova knocked the Jayhawks out of the NCAA Tournament Saturday night, with a 64-59 victory at the KFC Yum! Center.
“It is hard for everybody,” KU coach Bill Self said. “These kids have done everything they could possibly do. I feel awful for Perry. He’s given us so much. Tonight wasn’t his night.”
Of the game, Self said: “We were up 16-12 and then it’s 32-23,” he said of Villanova’s lead. “A lot of that was shot selection. Live ball turnovers led to layups. We bailed them out by clipping off threes. Other than Devonté (Graham) we were 0-11 from three going into Frank’s (Mason III) last shot (late three to cut deficit to one) with 30 seconds left. We could have gotten more big touches inside. I think we were out of character for the most part the whole night.”
