It is nearly the end of another incredible decade for the Kansas men's basketball program.

Under the guidance of Bill Self, the Jayhawks have been as consistent as any team in the nation. While Kansas might not have a national title this decade, the 2010's featured plenty of memorable moments and players.

For proof of that, look no further thanthe All-Decade Draft on the latest KU Sports Hour. Matt Tait, Benton Smith and I drafted a seven-player squad on the most-recent podcast. It features five starters and two bench spots.

To be eligible for a selection, a player must have played for Kansas at any point between 2010-19. As a result, players that played in the 2009-10 season were even eligible. It was a fun exercise that ultimately proved how many talented players have come through Lawrence over the last 10 years.
