Defending a national championship is hard enough, but try doing it without a single returning starter and with seven newcomers. That's Bill Self's problem this season, and improving Oklahoma and Texas teams look ready to knock off the Jayhawks.
Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur both scored 16 points and Kansas beat Texas A&M 72-55 on Saturday to clinch at least a share of its fourth straight Big 12 regular-season title.
It's a good thing Kansas lost in the first round of the NCAAs (again). Now Bill Self has something to motivate his potential national champs.
Kansas 65, Texas A&M 60
