Kansas Jayhawks Basketball Tickets Information

Back to Top

The Jayhawks have been one of the elite programs in college basketball since they started playing the sport in the 19th century. Kansas has had a long tradition of coaching excellence, starting with the inventor of the sport himself, Doctor James Naismith. Another legendary coach, Phog Allen, spent 38 years as the boss in Kansas, and led the Jayhawks to their first National Championship in 1952. Three and a half decades later, Larry Brown brought Kansas back to the top of the college basketball world with a championship in 1988. Current coach Bill Self took over in 2003, and has been one of the best in the sport ever since. Self won Kansas’ most recent championship in 2008 with a team that featured no star, but a wealth of eventual NBA talent. The Jayhawks continually have one of the best recruiting classes in the nation, making them a constant threat for another national title.

2016 Jayhawks Season Preview

If anything in college basketball has been a guarantee over the last decade, it has been the Kansas Jayhawks. Kansas won an unprecedented 11th straight Big 12 championship last season, and have shown no signs of slowing down. The 2015-16 Kansas Jayhawks roster will be anchored by senior forward Perry Ellis, who looks to be one of the most prolific scorers in the Big 12. Ellis will have plenty of help from fellow forward Wayne Selden, and together Ellis and Selden should team up to be one of the nation’s best front courts. The bar for the Kansas Jayhawks basketball season is always high, and anything less than a 12th straight conference championship will be a disappointment. Kansas Big 12 schedule will be one of the toughest in years, with Baylor, Iowa State, and Oklahoma all having legitimate shots of dethrowning the Jayhawks. But until another team knocks them off, the Kansas Jayhawks are the champs in the Big 12, and should be poised for another high NCAA Tournament seed in 2015-16.
