The Jayhawks might be 19-2, owners of a top-5 national ranking, and in line for a high seed come March, but their midseason report cards reveal a load of question marks and bad grades.
Bill Self has seen his offense take a critical nose dive in the last month, as KU eclipsed 67 points on Saturday for the first time since January 9th.
Unfortunately, their harassing defense yielded 17 offensive rebounds in a loss to Oklahoma State, a loss that showed the Jayhawks' small margin for error.
“We have less of a margin for error than any team I’ve had since I’ve been here,” Self said following the 85-80 defeat.
The 2012-13 midseason grades are as inconsistent as KU's offense, but they do showcase an impressive 19-2 start and leave room for optimism.
