Kansas jayhawks cheerleaders

The Kansas Jayhawks were supposed to be the unstoppable beast heading into the NCAA Tournament and practically every expert’s pick to bring home the championship.  Instead, KU was upset in the second round by Northern Iowa and saw their title hopes vanish quicker than Bruce Pearl’s recruiting ethics in the past couple of months.

Despite losing three starters, the Jayhawks reload on talent and should be in Final Four conversations come March; assuming they finally get highly touted freshman Josh Selby’s status straightened out.

The Sports Bank’s “99 in 99” ranks the 72 power conference college basketball teams and top 27 mid-majors for the 2010-2011 season.  Click here if you missed teams #8-#99.
