Bill Self has had enough with the slow starts and lack of effort.
The Kansas Jayhawks played the Michigan State Spartans at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. on Sunday, March 19, 2017 during the second round of the 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Jayhawks defeated the Spartans 90 - 70 and move on to the Sweet Sixteen in Kansas City.
"Even selfish guys play for themselves, which is better than playing for no one. We obviously have gone through periods of time where individuals haven't played for anyone."
He says, Mitch Lightfoot will earn a start over LaGerald Vick against TCU. It will be Lightfoot's first career start.
“I think we have a couple of guys (starters) that obviously don’t try very hard, and we’re going to make some changes in our lineup, at least one change,” Self said Monday. “We don’t have a lot of options to do more than that. t’d be nice to have guys compete and play to their athletic ability. We’re going to try to do that. Mitch certainly deserves the opportunity to play.”
The Jayhawks host the Horned Frogs on ESPN2 at 8:00 Tuesday night.
