Kansas Wins 11th-Straight Big 12 Conference Regular-Season Title

LAWRENCE, Kan. – With Iowa State defeating Oklahoma on ESPN Big Monday, March 2, Kansas men’s basketball has claimed at least a share of the 2015 Big 12 Conference regular-season championship.
With two games remaining in the Big 12 slate for the Jayhawks, KU’s Tuesday opponent West Virginia (22-7, 10-6) and its March 7 foe Oklahoma (20-9, 11-6) could tie Kansas (23-6, 12-4) as could Iowa State (21-8, 11-6).
The conference title for Kansas is its 11th-straight, 15th Big 12 and NCAA-leading 58th overall. The 11-consecutive titles, beginning in 2004-05 and all under head coach Bill Self, ranks tied for second all-time on NCAA Division I list with Gonzaga’s 11-straight Big West regular-season championships from 2001-11 and only trails UCLA’s 13-consecutive titles as members of the then-Pac-10 Conference from 1967-79.
