The Kansas Jayhawks heading into this week’s conference tournament have a 26-5 record overall, and won a share of the regular season conference crown. Kansas is the league’s top seed for the tournament.
The Jayhawks could use a good showing the conference tournament to earn that number one seed in the NCAA tournament. Right now, many bracketologists have Kansas as a number one seed, though have Georgetown from the Big East on the cusp of overtaking them.
Kansas has many key wins helping out their resume on the season including: Ohio State, Kansas State (twice), Iowa State (twice), Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Belmont who already punched a ticket to the tournament. Kansas did lose to TCU, handing the Horned Frogs their first win on the season in conference play. Kansas also lost to Michigan State way back on Nov. 13th, 67-64. Baylor, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State each got big wins over Kansas this season.
Nothing worse then a two seed will await Kansas in the NCAA tournament. A one seed is very likely, though a bad showing in the conference tournament could prevent this from happening. If Kansas takes care of business on Thursday, and wins another on Friday, the team should have earned that top seed in the “big dance.”
