NCAA Tournament 2017: 28 in a row and counting...

Photo detail

2009-10 — With Sherron Collins (15.5 ppg) and Cole Aldrich (11.3 ppg) back to lead the team one more time, Kansas roared to a monster regular season, losing just twice — at Tennessee and at Oklahoma State — en route to a No. 1 seed in the Midwest regional. Freshman starter Xavier Henry (13.4 ppg) added firepower to KU’s lineup and the Jayhawks rolled into the tournament as the No. 1 overall seed. But KU ran into a tough Northern Iowa team in Oklahoma City and a monster shot by a man named Ali Farokhmanesh was the final dagger in UNI’s upset over the Jayhawks, who finished the season 33-3.

Like Xavier Henry before him, KU freshman Josh Jackson joining talented, experienced Kansas roster

The current crop of Jayhawks, with freshman Josh Jackson, is going through something eerily similar to what the 2009-10 team did with Xavier Henry. The names, numbers and faces may be different, but there’s a certain amount of symmetry between the two teams. By Matt Tait
