In celebration for a fantastic 2011-12 season and as a means of letting the fans give one last chance to cheer on their team, the Kansas Jayhawks held a banquet in Lawrence on Monday night. Head coach Bill Self showed a highlight video, then retold the story of the season that ended with KU the runners-up in the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
Bryan Cisler of JayhawkSlant.com attended the banquet and was able to collect some of Self's comments about his key players and their contributions to the team.
Self on Elijah Johnson: "He is the most analytical deep thinker of anybody on our team. He's the best interviewer that we have. He thinks about what he is going to say and puts great thought into it. We are the comeback kids because in large part because he doesn't start playing until after halftime. I think Tyshawn has played better than any guard we have had since I've been here, but the two most talented guards I have had since I have been here, and you talk about everything: speed, strength, slide, stroke, vision, and handles. The two best guards that we have recruited have been Sherron Collins and Elijah Johnson."
