Jayhawks' 1999-00 schedule
| Kansas |
| 1998-99 record |
| 23-10 overall, 11-5 Big 12 (lost to Kentucky in NCAA second round)
| Coach |
| Roy Williams, 305-72 (11 seasons)|
| Projected starting lineup |
G Jeff Boschee, 6-1 So. |
Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Tournament MVP.
G Luke Axtell, 6-10 Jr.
Broken wrist will cost him preseason games, but it's on non-shooting
F Kenny Gregory, 6-5 Jr.
Explosive player was team's third-leading scorer last season (11.3 ppg).
F Nick Collison, 6-9 Fr.
This McDonald's All-America selection is poised to contribute.
C Eric Chenowith, 7-1 Jr.
All-America candidate led team with 13.5 points and 9.1 rebounds a game.
| Top guy off the bench |
F Nick Bradford, 6-9 Sr.
Started 32 games as a power forward last season, but looks to get his
small frame away from basket this year.
| Key Newcomer |
F Drew Gooden, 6-9, El Cerrito, Calif. |
One of three freshmen (Collison and Kirk Hinrich) expected to be in nine- or 10-man rotation.
| Key Games |
| Looks for the sweet taste of revenge against St. Louis (Dec.
30), but trip to Austin to face Texas (Feb. 28) could be league's
game of the year.
| Outlook |
Welcome back. After a taste of mediocrity (fell out of AP
rankings for first time in 144 weeks last season), the Jayhawks look to return to
their rightful place among the elite. Axtell's offensive impact will
keep defenses from collapsing on Chenowith, and Collison and Gooden
should provide inside help to keep teams honest in the post. Definite
conference favorite, with Sweet 16 probable and more likely possible.
