The Kansas Jayhawks were supposed to be a top five team and Andrew Wiggins was supposed to be second to nobody. Well, neither have been the case so far, but this team has no reason to panic after a recent loss to the San Diego State Aztecs.
Kansas still has some quality wins and the talent is still there. The Jayhawks have already beaten Wake Forest, Duke, Georgetown and New Mexico. Its losses came against Colorado, Florida, Villanova and, of course, San Diego State. All four of those teams are ranked in the top 25.
Now, if the Jayhawks lose the first couple in Big 12 play, then it might be time to hit the panic button. With that in mind, they will not start off conference play with an easy schedule. Kansas will take on Oklahoma, Kansas State, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Baylor right off of the bat. There really is not a single break in there.
All of those teams have impressive records and all of those teams are good enough to make the NCAA tournament. Fear not. This should be a blessing for Kansas. If it wins all of those games or even loses just one, it could be ranked in the top 10 yet again.
Andrew Wiggins is still the most talented player in college hoops and Bill Self still has a very good basketball team.
This team has no bad losses and a few good ones. It can still earn a No. 1 seed in the Big Dance by winning the Big 12 and Wiggins could still prove to be the best player.
