Bill Self entered the season with an abundance of question marks and, while he has repeatedly stressed improved guard play, the Jayhawks offense appears to be operating more efficiently as of late.
Elijah Johnson and Naadir Tharpe have struggled to effectively run the team's pass-heavy offensive system, even forcing Self to experiment in practice with forward Kevin Young running the point.
But those two guards are not the only players that need to make an early-season adjustment.
At 7-1, with a high-flying freshman, an All-American candidate at center, and the most improved player in the Big 12 in Travis Releford, Kansas has the tools to continue their roll through the non-conference schedule.
Nevertheless, in order to bring a ninth straight conference title to Lawrence, each impact Jayhawk must make a positive adjustment.
