Photo detail

2008-09 — Forced to replace all five starters from the national championship team one year earlier, the Jayhawks leaned on the dynamic duo of junior Sherron Collins (18.9 ppg) and sophomore Cole Aldrich (14.9 ppg) to finish the season 27-8. Freshman point guard Tyshawn Taylor and freshman forward Marcus Morris, whose brother, Markieff, also was on the team, helped KU survive the loss of six of the eight players who played in the title game against Memphis in 2008. Seeded third in the Big Dance, Kansas lost in the Sweet 16, 67-62, to a Michigan State team that went on to lose to North Carolina in the national championship game.
