Kansas Jayhawks Ranked No. 15 In Latest USA Today/Coaches Basketball Rankings

The Kansas Jayhawks are not the elite team that they’ve been in years past under Bill Self, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not a contender yet again for another Big 12 title. The Jayhawks are currently ranked No. 15 in the country and face a stiff test this week with the Kansas State Wildcats on Wednesday as their next opponent heading into Big 12 conference play.

The Jayhawks were expected to take a hit after losing the Morris twins and Josh Selby to the NBA Draft as well as a class of solid role players with the graduating seniors. Thomas Robinson has certainly stepped up, but the lack of depth overall has hurt the Jayhawks as well as inconsistent guard play. Currently the Jayhawks are 10-3.
