Bill Self just keeps doing it, and each year it seems more remarkable. It, of course, is coaching his Kansas Jayhawks to Big 12 regular-season titles -- a Division I-record 14 years in a row. After losing three starters, including National Player of the Year Frank Mason, this one might be the most impressive, especially given that in mid-February, the Jayhawks were just 8-4 in the league, with two home losses. KU is 8-1 since, including an impressive march to the Big 12 tournament title. Far less satisfying, however, is the streak of five straight seasons without a Final Four appearance. While the conference titles keep coming, could this be the year the Jayhawks return to the Final Four?
