Big 12 Tournament: No. 200 for Self at Kansas
Kansas beat Texas A&M 79-66 in Friday night’s first Big 12 Tournament semifinal, giving Jayhawks coach Bill Self his 200th win at Kansas.
“That’s not a big deal,” said Self, the former Oklahoma State player and Edmond Memorial High School product who got to the milestone 11 games faster than previous coach KU Roy Williams. “But it is nice to get it. We’ve been on a pretty good roll here lately. I’d like to get to (No.) 207. That’d be nice.”
Getting to 207 wins this season would give Self his second national championship in the last three years. Self, who is in his seventh season at the school, is now 200-42 (.826) at KU and.407-147 (.735) in 17 seasons overall that included previous stops at Oral Roberts, Tulsa and Illinois.
On Thursday night, Kansas became the third program in history (Kentucky and North Carolina) to reach 2,000 all-time victories.
