Kansas leads the Big 12 after a strong start. Kansas was picked to win the league in the preseason, and is currently on pace to do so. It won’t be easy for the Jayhawks, who open the second half of Big 12 play on Feb. 7th at Texas, as well as a trip to Baylor still on the schedule.

HOW WE GOT HERE

Kansas got to this point behind All-American candidate Ochai Agbaji, who is having a breakout season after returning to KU for his senior season. Agbaji is averaging 20.8 points, 5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game this season. He is also shooting 51% overall and is 46% from beyond the arc.

Kansas has also gotten strong contributions from Christian Braun. Braun is averaging 15 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists per game this season. Jalen Wilson has also been key in conference play. Wilson has scored in double figures in six of nine Big 12 games this season.
