Kansas’ regular-season title streak ends at 14

Reported by ESPN:

The streak is over.

Kansas‘ run of 14 consecutive Big 12 regular-season championships ended Tuesday night, as the Jayhawks’ 81-68 loss at Oklahoma mathematically eliminated them from the title race.

Texas Tech and Kansas State are both 13-4 in conference play, while Kansas dropped to 11-6. All three teams have one game remaining before the Big 12 conference tournament.

Bill Self’s first Big 12 championship came in his second season in Lawrence, back in 2004-05. The Jayhawks split the title with Oklahoma that season, the first of four shared titles during the 14-year streak. With Texas Tech and Kansas State both guaranteed to finish ahead of the Jayhawks, this will be the worst finish for Self since his arrival at Kansas in 2003. In his first season at the helm, Kansas finished tied for second place, two games back of Oklahoma State.
