Kansas was never “not good enough”. The three game losing streak they battled through? That embarrassing loss to TCU? Their first three game losing streak since 2005? Their first losing streak — period — since 2006? That was never a result of Kansas being bad or Kansas being anything other than the Big 12 favorite and a Final Four contender. We knew Kansas was flawed at the beginning of the season. We knew they would be forced to use an out-of-position Elijah Johnson or an overmatched Naadir Tharpe at the point, and we knew that Ben McLemore would take time to embrace the role of go-to scorer.
