Bill Self addresses playing during pandemic, Jayhawks’ 5-1 start
Sparked by Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski earlier this week questioning whether the college basketball season should keep plowing ahead through the COVID-19 pandemic, Kansas coach Bill Sel fielded some questions on the topic Thursday afternoon.
"The precautions that we do and the protocols that we have would be, in many ways, far safer than if we aren't playing and if we just turned the guys loose,” Self said.
“I also think there’s been a lot of safety measures taken,” he added. “Nobody bats 1.000.”
Self also assessed the play of his No. 5-ranked Jayhawks (5-1) ahead of a Friday home game versus Omaha.
