Expectations for the next 5 games?

I got a laugh at BTN when they showed the graphic with Nebraska's schedule during this stretch and one of the guys said something like Tim "couldn't get the Golden State Warriors on the schedule" or something.

 

"Apparently the Golden State Warriors were booked." ;)

2-2 after 4...like it or not we were expected to be 1-3 at this point and 1-4 to finish so we're already ahead of the game with one more chance to get a win.

 

It's Kansas Hate Week everybody!  LET'S GOOOO!!!

 

 

They only let the conference champ go to the tourney for years. I think we can blame a portion of us not making it there in the 50s or some other decade like that on being in the same conference with the team that invented basketball.

Haven't been to phog net in a while. Wonder what that is like these days.

I visit there practically every day.  Truly an amazing lack of hoops insight for a fanbase of a hoops "blue blood".

 

Makes me so appreciative of what we have here in HHC!

Kansas is 7-0 when they hold opponents under 50% from 2, 0-2 when they don't.  We have some work to do in the lab.

 

1-2 now.  But it was close.

Gotta have the next 3. Can't lose focus.

 

Stealing one of those roadies would be huge.

 

Had someone in the program tell me yesterday that UTSA doesn't play a lick of defense. Should be a lot of points scored in that one.

You know what, looking back, we could have won four of five.  Now we have to go on a lonnnnggggg win streak.

Yep...we were a whisper from having a really great stretch. Instead, it was merely acceptable. We don't need to go on a long winning streak, we just need to keep playing hard and getting better. The rest will take care of itself. We shouldn't need to run the table in February like we basically did in '14. Just keep playing hard. If nothing else, I hope they took that away from these past few games.

I would say 3-2 is a must and won't kill us.  4-1 is probably what I would like.  5-0 is very very probable in the next 5.

Eh, not sure about that. Purdue is gonna be really tough to beat in their building. We're fortunate we get them over Christmas break.
