Bill Self recaps season-ending loss to Villanova, reflects on Devonte' Graham's career
San Antonio — Bill Self's post game speech was every bit a reminder to his team of what it had accomplished.
The Jayhawks finished the season 31-8. They won the Big 12 regular season and tournament championships and reached the Final Four under Self for the first time since 2012.
"Of all the teams that have gotten to a Final Four that we've had," Self said, "this one was probably the least expected one to do it."
Villanova, on the other hand, is still dancing.
The Wildcats knocked down a Final Four record 18 3-pointers en route to a 95-79 win over KU on Saturday.
"Today was a perfect storm early," Self said. "Unfortunately for us we were on the wrong end of it."
