Kansas coach Bill Self feels the Texas Longhorns have already secured an NCAA Tournament berth.

Self made the proclamation on the Big 12 coaches conference call on Monday, although he acknowledged the Longhorns may play a little “desperate” going into this week’s Big 12 tournament to solidify an invitation to the Big Dance.

Of course, Self’s Jayhawks are the ones on tap to face the Longhorns on Thursday night.
