LAWRENCE, Kan. — Bill Self realizes that as time goes by, college basketball fans nationwide will not care much about the Kansas Jayhawks’ magical 28-3 season of 2019-20.
Self, KU’s 17th-year hoops coach, does hope, however, that this squad, which was ticketed to be the No. 1 overall seed in the 2020 NCAAs had COVID-19 coronavirus not forced cancellation of the postseason tournament, will forever be recalled fondly by Jayhawk supporters.
“Ten years from now they are not going to talk about what could have been. Nobody is going to talk about that,” Self said. “There will be something new to talk about, but I hope these guys are remembered by our fans as being a team that was probably as special or as close to special as any team that they’ve supported during their time supporting Kansas.”
