Resolution No. 3 for Kansas Basketball: Capturing another Big 12 conference title
Kansas has already proven they’re one of the more talented teams in the conference this season and it should a priority that they continue to make their way through the schedule with another conference title on their minds.
Finding success in conference play this season will help set a tone for March and it will be an excellent look for upperclassmen such as Marcus Garrett, Ochai Agbaji, and David McCormack. This season poses as an opportunity for these guys to step up and rectify the horrendous ending college basketball saw to its season in March of 2019.
Every program is eager to get back to work but I can’t imagine one more eager than Kansas. Last season the Jayhawks were heading into March with a 26-10 regular-season record and were herald as a strong favorite in the ESPN Bracket Challenge.
As disappointing as the abrupt ending to last season was, the Jayhawks have been snapping right back and have put a decent product on the court so far. Finding another conference title will cement Kansas into the general conversation for schools looking to make their way into the Final Four.
Kansas basketball has a ways to go, but they’re off to a solid start heading into 2021.
The Jayhawks could be in a worse place compared to some other programs right now. It’s safe to say Kansas has quite of bit of talent at its disposal and this should prove effective as we head into the new year.
The key will be consistently showing up in these conference games and the Jayhawks can’t let up games to median record conference opponents. This would only slow down Kansas’ mojo and hurt them in the national rankings. It will be tough tests against schools such as No. 2 Baylor that will give the Jayhawks a chance to show they’re worthy of being on the national stage.
Kansas is in a good place right now and slipping out of the conversation must be avoided. This shouldn’t be an issue for Bill Self and his Jayhawks, however, as they’re among the conference leaders in scoring and boast one of the best starting fives in the Big 12. We’ve seen great starts slip before and hopefully, Kansas can sustain their traction heading into 2021.
Will the Kansas Jayhawks be able to live up to these resolutions?
