2016-17 — It certainly has not been business as usual around Lawrence for the Kansas Jayhawks, but the results have remained the same. Despite playing mostly with a four-guard lineup and limited depth, KU rolled to its 13th consecutive Big 12 title and 28th straight trip to the NCAA Tournament. Guards Frank Mason III, Devonte’ Graham and Josh Jackson led the way all season, while Landen Lucas held things down in the paint for a Kansas team that Bill Self said, “may not play the best, but there’s no team tougher than the University of Kansas.” Snagging a No. 1 seed for the seventh time in Self’s 14 seasons, the Jayhawks, once again, enter the tournament hoping to bring a banner back to Allen Fieldhouse.
