Game day breakdown: Kansas basketball vs. North Texas in Orlando

3. Use recent experience to your advantage

Self and the Jayhawks have a great deal of respect for North Texas, both because of the style with which the Mean Green play and because of what they’ve done in the past. 

“You guys have seen Purdue play,” Self said Tuesday. “They may be the best team in the country. And North Texas beat them last year. And Purdue’s playing with the same guys they had last year.” 

That particular victory came in the NCAA Tournament, where the Mean Green advanced to the second round as a No. 13 seed. 

Self also noted that this year’s UNT team took Buffalo down to the wire in a 69-66 loss, shortly after Buffalo went toe to toe with No. 6 Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich. 

“They’re capable of giving us all we want and more,” Self said of KU’s Round 1 foe. 

The reason? According to Self, it’s because this group plays a lot like Tarleton State and Stony Brook, with scrappy competitors making things tough all over the floor and a variety of talented players at multiple positions. 

“Interchangeable parts,” Self said. “Much like we’ve played against so far. They will play a big a good part of the time. Maybe not all the time. Their guards and wings are really good. They’re balanced.”

So much so that Self said North Texas was tougher to scout than a lot of teams.
