In most cases when the Kansas basketball team loses a midweek contest at the beginning of February it would be wise to not overreact. After all, the Jayhawks are eight-time defending Big 12 champions and a regular in the later rounds of the NCAA tournament.

Throw in the fact that Kansas had a mere two points 13 minutes into the game, and there is some reason for concern. Read on to see some questions Bill Self’s team is suddenly facing.
