LAWRENCE, Kan. Nine games in and ranked first in the country, this Kansas basketball team remains hard to figure. Talented, versatile, an intriguing mix of ability and experience. Undefeated against one of the sports toughest schedules, and still largely underwhelming.
Maybe maybe we saw a glimpse of their best in a 74-71 win over No. 17 Villanova at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday. Maybe. Did we mention maybe?
Lets be clear: KU can be better than this. Has to be better than this, actually, to keep the Big 12 championship streak going and continue feeding the Jayhawk basketball industrial complex.
