“This was a toughness win, we grinded it out.” – Brannen Greene
“I felt good since shootaround, I liked the arena.” – Brannen Greene
Bill Self on Brannen Greene’s career-high 19 points: “According to him, if I let him play, he could do that most every night.”
“I love my team, we showed some signs that we’re going to be great. It was a big boy game and we stepped up.” – Kelly Oubre
Self says he wants to play Oubre more at the four moving forward.
Self said Svi has earned the ‘most trust’ in practice, but could tell it was not his night. Greene, Self says, is earning more trust, too.
Kansas gets better as a TEAM each time it takes the floor. Jayhawks with a solid win at Georgetown. Still the team to beat in the Big 12.
The real question is why is Kansas playing a true road game at Georgetown in December? Wish more coaches scheduled like Bill Self.
Bill Self has the stones to schedule G’town on the road, gets rewarded. Other coaches, do this. The payoffs are there.Don’t schedule scared.
Frank Mason gives the Jayhawks a halftime lead with a last possession layup.
