Kansas basketball had some huge wins on their way to a No. 1 finish in the final AP Poll last season. Here are the three most important.

Kansas basketball was the best team in the country last season. They topped every poll, they were the undisputed No. 1 overall seed, and they were the favorites to win the title. Despite not having a chance to prove themselves in March Madness, the Jayhawks won plenty of other important games throughout the 2019-20 season.

Before we start with the three most important wins, there are a couple of honorable mentions.

Honorable Mentions:

#1 Kansas vs. Texas Tech, March 7

Kansas basketball had already clinched a share of the Big 12 title when they went on the road to face Texas Tech, but beating the Red Raiders earned the Jayhawks an outright conference championship. While it was an important win to clinch the Big 12 outright, the game itself didn’t really have much impact in terms of tournament seeding or the postseason at all for that matter.

#6 Kansas vs. Oklahoma, January 14

The Jayhawks hit the road to take on Oklahoma three days after being beaten at home by Baylor. Kansas would have to play the Sooners without leading point scorer Devon Dotson who was injured in the previous game against the Bears. After taking just a one-point lead into halftime, Kansas ended up winning 66-52 behind a 20 point performance from Isaiah Moss and a double-double from Udoka Azubuike.
