Kansas basketball coach Bill Self was happy to see his players add to the program’s stash of trophies with a win over TCU in the Jayhawks’ home finale.
“It feels good,” Self said. “It’s a goal every year to try to win the league, and this obviously guarantees us a share of it. We’d like to go down and take care of business Saturday to win it outright (at Texas Tech). It’s been kind of a long grind through the conference season, especially when you start off from behind and the team in front of you never loses.”
