KU coach Bill Self following 77-60 loss at Iowa State

Kansas coach Bill Self spoke to reporters following a 77-60 loss to Iowa State Saturday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum.

"That was a beatdown. We got off to such a bad start and we were ahead," Self said. "I looked up (at the scoreboard and wondered) How in the world were we ahead? We had five turnovers by the first TV timeout, then it just kind of go worse from there ... Their guards are really good and they showed us how guards are supposed to play; you move it, you share it, you drive it, you pass it. You shoot it when you're open, you don't take bad shots.

The Jayhawks are now 12-2 overall, including 1-1 in Big 12 play.
