1999-2000 — The slide continued for Kansas after the 10-loss 1998-99 season. But 2000 also marked the beginning of a major surge. Led by junior Kenny Gregory (12.8 ppg) and talented freshmen Nick Collison, Drew Gooden and Kirk Hinrich, the Jayhawks struggled to a No. 8 seed and lost to top-seeded Duke in the second round, 69-64, in a game that featured an epic battle between Hinrich and former Duke point guard Jason Williams. KU finished the season 24-10.
