The arrest came shortly after the Jayhawks secured a 13th consecutive Big 12 title with a win over TCU. Kansas has done this every year since 2004-05, which was Bill Self's second year at the school.
The mark would tie a Division I record UCLA set from 1967-79. After the game and following a short highlight film, athletic director Sheahon Zenger presented the Kansas seniors the Big 12 regular-season trophy - with the previous 12 on display on the Fieldhouse floor. I don't know that a conference has had a bottom team (Oklahoma) that was in the Final Four the year before. Baylor ascended to No. 1 overall in the rankings for the first time ever, but the Bears slipped up in conference play and are now only 10-5 in the Big 12.
In an overtime victory over West Virginia, the Jayhawks used a press to instigate a frantic rally from 14 points down in the final three minutes of regulation. The Mountaineers beat Kansas once at home and then lost a heartbreaker in Lawrence earlier this month.
Kansas can clinch the outright title with a victory Saturday at Texas. Kansas has been involved in seven games decided by six points or fewer, and five games decided by four points or fewer. Junior forward Kenrich Williams ranks second in the league in rebounds (9.0) and junior guard Alex Robinson third in assists (5.8). TCU's six conference wins are the most since the Horned Frogs joined the Big 12 during the 2012-13 season. He promptly dropped 20 on the Horned Frogs.
