Kansas Vs. Purdue: Jayhawks Win Despite Shooting Woes

For Kansas coach Bill Self, Sunday's win over Purdue was not the way he likes to see his team go about grabbing a victory. Particularly one in the third-round of the NCAA Tournament.

Kansas somehow came up with a 63-60 win over the Boilermakers to advance to the Sweet-16 despite shooting 34 percent from the field and leading for a grand total of 45 seconds. Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson combined to shoot 6-23 from the field yet still found a way at crunch time.

Following the game Bill Self talked about his team's performance and how great teams usually perform in the tournament.

"I've been around long enough that usually teams that have great success in the tournament, they figure out to win a game when they don't play their best."
