At 12-7 and 2-4 in the Big 12, the Texas Longhorns would hardly be mistaken for a college hoops powerhouse this season. That didn't stop Kansas coach Bill Self from declaring the Jayhawks 66-63 win over the Longhorns as his team's best of the season.
"Best win of the year for us," When asked to elaborate, Self replied "Absolutely, On the road, in a tough place for us, having to come from behind. Best win."
Keep in mind that the Jayhawks were coming off of handing then No. 3 Baylor its first loss of the season 92-74. However, the way Kansas responded when down 64-60 has Self very happy with his team. The Jayhawks finished the game on a 9-2 run to seal the 66-63 win.
Next up for Jayhawks is a home matchup with Texas A&M on Monday.
