Bill Self on first half: “I thought that’s the best half of basketball we’ve played.”

Bill Self says Svi Mykhailiuk is KU’s best ball-mover on the offensive end. For what it’s worth, I concur. “… European ball,” Self said.

. on the development of the 2014-15 Jayhawks.

Self: I’d like to see us settle in on a starting five but I have a hard time starting guys who are late to tutoring

Self on Selden: He’s old enough to know how to do what we want to do & he’s a good example for the other guys…

Self liked Ellis’ aggressive play but points on 3 rebounds… 1 every 9 minutes. Should’ve been 1 every 4 minutes.

Self on Greene: Offense was good. “I’d like to see him be able to guard his man better.”

Self on Svi: He understands better than anybody, maybe, that the ball needs to move. Also says he’s gonna be a great shooter soon…

Self on Alexander: I wanted to see how he handled starting a half and I don’t think he handled it very well.

Self talks about emphasis on scouting report and guys understanding how to play to it. Should get crash course this weekend…

Self on 3 games in 4 days in Orlando: I think it’ll be good for us. Allow us to focus on things we don’t understand yet.
