10 quotes from Bill Self on KU’s win over Oklahoma State
The Jayhawks led by double-figures for much of the second half, going up by as many as 19 in front of the capacity crowd of 16,300 at Allen Fieldhouse. A shortened KU lineup received only 12 points from its bench — with six of those, along with nine rebounds coming from junior Mitch Lightfoot — but that was enough for the Jayhawks to improve to 18-6 on the season and 7-4 against conference foes. Oklahoma State, in the meantime, dropped to 9-14 (2-8 Big 12)

As currently comprised, the Kansas roster is too flawed overall for the Jayhawks to play the type of aesthetically pleasing basketball that has characterized so many of their predecessors coached by Bill Self.

Marcus Garrett likely to miss KU-WVU game: ‘May be weeks away from being 100 percent’
“I think he’s making some progress but it’s slow,” Self said. “The training staff … Bill (Cowgill, basketball trainer) feels that he’s not in a bad place at all, but he is in a bad place considering what we wish he was (health wise).

K.J. Lawson plays key role in Jayhawks snapping road skid
The final KU shot of regulation was never supposed to go to K.J. Lawson. Well, it was always an option, but the first look was a post-up for Lawson’s younger-yet-larger brother, “Smoove,” as he was referred to by KU freshman Devon Dotson after the game.

Bill Self’s thoughts on KU’s toughness, Big 12 race post-TCU
“Well yeah, I feel good that we came back after we gave it up,” Self said in the post-game press conference. “I didn’t feel good that the toughness was so good [sarcastically] as we gave it up. But I did think that was a pretty makeshift lineup out there, and those guys hung in there. They did some good things.”

“This is a tough loss for us,” James said. “We didn’t have consistent play from all facets of the game. Offensively and defensively, we jacked up a lot of coverages to start the game.
