Kansas Jayhawks Hold Off Challengers In Big 12 Hoops
In college basketball, the eighth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks are maintaining their hold on first place in the Big 12 after beating Iowa State Monday night, 89-76.
With a victory over the Kansas Jayhawks earlier this season, Iowa State positioned itself as one of the few teams that could be a serious threat to break the stranglehold KU has on regular season titles.
The Jayhawks are working on winning their 11th straight title. But even after solidifying first place in the Big 12, Jayhawks coach Bill Self isn’t ready to celebrate yet.
“Whether you play a ranked team or not, they’re all hard in our league,” said Jayhawks coach Bill Self. “I think we’ve put ourselves in a favorable position, but it’s way too premature.”
West Virginia has taken over second place and the Mountaineers play a road game at Oklahoma Tuesday night.
