Bill Self: KU settled for ‘marginal’ shots in Elite Eight loss to Oregon
Kansas City, Mo. — After rolling through the first three rounds of the NCAA Tournament, Kansas finally had an off night offensively in the Elite Eight versus Oregon.
After the Ducks moved on to the Final Four Saturday night at Sprint Center, KU coach Bill Self said his Jayhawks played tight at times and often settled for what he considered less-than-desirable shots, instead of finding opportunities within the rhythm of the offense.
“I thought we took a lot of marginal shots,” Self said after Kansas lost, 74-60. “Step-back threes. Corner threes that led to numbers for them. It’s one thing if you’re a terrific offensive rebounding team to shoot the ball as impatiently as we did. But we didn’t do much on the offensive glass.”
