Oklahoma State's Mike Boynton in league of his own
No fewer than 38 different men have coached Big 12 schools against Bill Self during his 15 seasons at Kansas. Billy Gillispie, Bob Huggins and Melvin Watkins each led two different universities against Self's Kansas squads.
Just one man among those 38 coaches can boast a winning record in Big 12 games played in the regular season and postseason against KU's Hall of Fame coach. By Saturday evening, it's possible there won't be any.
Oklahoma State's Mike Boynton is in a league of his own in having a winning Big 12 record against Self. Then again, he has faced him just once, winning in Allen Fieldhouse, 84-79, Feb. 3.
Self puts his 18-0 record in Big 12, regular-season payback games on the line Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena against Boynton's Cowboys in a game that tips off at 3 p.m.
