Season Storylines

For the second-straight season, KU posted a 12-4 Big 12 record, but in 2005 that mark tied Oklahoma for the Jayhawks’ first Big 12 regular-season title in the Bill Self era. Kansas kicked off the year 14-0 and didn’t lose its first conference game until Valentine’s Day – a one-point, double-overtime loss at Texas Tech.

The loss started a three-game skid until victories against Oklahoma State and Kansas State righted the ship and maintained partial rights to the throne

Fans said goodbye Kansas legendary seniors Keith Langford, Aaron Miles and Wayne Simien, who finished his career with First Team All-America status.

A rare Allen Fieldhouse loss, 69-66 to Texas A&M, lit a fire under the Jayhawks. Kansas won the next seven regular-season game to lock up the Big 12 trophy with a 14-2 record and dash Texas A&M’s hopes of sharing it. The Aggies finished 13-3.

The Jayhawks advanced to the Big 12 Tournament championship game, where they squared off against Texas. Kansas has faced the Longhorns in four different Big 12 Tournament championship games, including 2007, and has won all four.
