Bill Self led his Jayhawks to a key win against rival Missouri.

It’s not every day a coach wins a game for his team, but Bill Self deserves a ton of credit for his team picking up a key win on Saturday against Missouri.

Bill Self is one of the best coaches in the game of college basketball. Self has been an assistant coach since 1985, working under other greats such as Larry Brown, Leonard Hamilton and Eddie Sutton. All of his experience and the amount of victories he has really showed up in key games, like the one on Saturday against Missouri.

Self’s Kansas Jayhawks edged out the Missouri Tigers in overtime, 87-86. When the Jayhawks were trailing by three with the game coming towards the end in regulation, Thomas Robinson picked up a key bucket. Robinson was also fouled on the play and drained the game-tying free throw to send it to overtime.

In overtime, Tyshawn Taylor was the man who gave the Jayhawks the lead with the clock ticking down. While both were solid buckets that required proper execution by all the players involved, it was a brilliant design by Bill Self.

The worst part for Missouri was that both scores came off the same look.
