The Kansas Jayhawks are aiming to qualify for the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014. Under head coach Dan Fitzgerald, the team stands at 29-18 overall and 6th in the Big 12 with a 15-12 record, showing significant improvement from previous seasons. Despite being on the bubble, a strong finish to the season, especially in their upcoming series against Texas, could solidify their spot. Kansas faces challenges with RPI and SOS but remains competitive within their conference.
