Kansas Basketball Roundtable: How are the Jayhawks looking this early season?


The Kansas Jayhawks basketball team seems to be on the right track again after a hard fought loss to Michigan State. The team has won the last four games, and are 5-1 on the year. Kansas next hosts Oregon State on Friday evening.

Rickey: After losing the Michigan State, the Jayhawks seem to be on track, but look at their opponents. Yes, McLemore and Johnson are playing nicely, but the opponents they are playing are nothing like MSU. I feel the game against #23 Colorado will be a good game to see if Kansas is on track?

George: In a couple of the games against teams the Jayhawks should be comfortably winning against they are having issues. This is due to all the new faces and youth. Though as the season goes on, look for Kansas to once again be competing for the national title. A young team looking to find their way, Kansas does look good overall.
