KU players responsible for historic Big 12 title streak react to its end
It took 14 years, and whether they were All-Americans, all-conference talents, role players, backups, glue guys or walk-ons, Kansas basketball players coached by Bill Self helped the program set an NCAA record for most consecutive conference championships in a row.

Here are some Twitter reactions from invested Jayhawks.
