Jayhawks favored, Sooners giving chase as Big 12 play tips

File-This Nov. 7, 2017, file photo shows Kansas' Billy Preston (23) getting past Fort Hays State's Jared Vitztum for a shot during the first half of an NCAA college exhibition basketball game in Lawrence, Kan. The fact that the gap has narrowed between Kansas and its rivals has every bit as much to do with the Jayhawks, though. Their reliance on outside shooting. Their ability to get to the foul line. Their perilous lack of depth, which has been somewhat alleviated now that Sun Devils transfer Sam Cunliffe is eligible and five-star prospect Silvio De Sousa has arrived on campus for the second semester. If they can get their other five-star recruit, Preston, on the court after spending the entire fall investigating an off-the-court financial issue, the Jayhawks could still be the team to beat.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — When the Big 12 coaches made their annual preseason pilgrimage to Kansas City a few months ago, every one of them except Kansas coach Bill Self predicted the Jayhawks would win another conference title.
