Winning the Big 12 will never be harder for Bill Self, Kansas after loss to ...

Texas Tech , an overlooked team nevertheless ranked 18th in the country and sporting a 12-1 record, marched into Allen Fieldhouse on Tuesday night and picked up one of the biggest wins in program history.

Kansas was outworked and often blitzed by a Tech team that made a national statement regarding its potential to win the Big 12 and get back to the NCAA Tournament for just the second time in 11 seasons.

Devonte' Graham is a fine college player but he is no substitute for what Frank Mason brought to KU last season and in years prior.

And it's the stat you should keep in mind before assuming Kansas is going to drift into the bottom of the polls and get caught behind Texas Tech, West Virginia , TCU or Oklahoma in the Big 12.

Statistically speaking, there is nothing as automatic in college basketball as Kansas finding a way to finish atop the Big 12 standings come the first week of March.
