Self says No. 3 Jayhawks won't take improved Huskers lightly
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- It will be the same old Kansas, if not
better, that visits Nebraska at the Devaney Sports Center tomorrow
Whether the same old Cornhuskers show up for the Big 12 opener
is yet to be seen.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self says all indications point to an
improved Cornhusker team compared with the one Kansas blew out
twice last season by a combined 73 points.
The Huskers (11-2) have finished higher than seventh in the Big
12 only once in the last eight years. Now they have their best
13-game record since 1994-95.
But they haven't faced a team as good as third-ranked Kansas
(15-0), which is off to its best start since the 1996-97 squad
Last year the Huskers flopped twice against KU. In Lincoln, the
Jayhawks scored a 76-56 victory and three weeks later in Lawrence,
Kansas bombed the Huskers 92-39.
