Coming off a very impressive victory over the top-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels, Bill Self & Co. are just two wins away from their second NCAA title in four years. Going for the program’s fourth overall national title, coach Self has instilled an air of confidence on his players that has translated into success beyond his own expectations.
“I think this would have been a year if we got to the second weekend, most Kansas faithful would be happy,” Self said. “But I don’t think those guys are satisfied or would ever think that. I think they think this is our year and I’m certainly not going to tell them differently. This team is pretty tough. Nothing fazes them. No matter what the situation is, they just think that they’re going to figure it out.”
