The 2010–11 Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball team represented the University of Kansas in the 2010–11 NCAA Division I men's basketball season, which was the Jayhawks' 113th basketball season. The head coach was Bill Self, who was serving his 8th year. The team played its home games in Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas and are members of the Big 12 Conference. They finished the season 35–3, 14–2 in Big 12 play to claim the regular season conference title. They were also champions of the 2011 Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament. They earned a #1 seed in the Southwest Region in the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament where they defeated Boston University in the second round and Illinois in the third round to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. They defeated Richmond to advance to the Elite Eight where they were upset by Virginia Commonwealth.

Pre-Season[edit]

Departures[edit]

Sherron Collins finished his senior year at Kansas and graduated in 2010. Junior center Cole Aldrich announced his intention to enter the NBA Draft on March 29, 2010, and Xavier Henry announced his intention to enter the NBA Draft on April 7, 2010. In mid-August coach Self announced, via press release, the departures of walk-ons C.J. Henry and Chase Buford. According to Self, Henry notified the coaching staff in late July of his intention to transfer to another University where he would continue his collegiate basketball career. Coach Self said that would-be senior Chase Buford would not return to the team in the fall in order to focus on academics.

Recruiting[edit]

Bill Self heavily courted 3 guards for the 2010–2011 season and landed the biggest one there was in the form of Josh Selby of Baltimore, MD. Selby committed on April 17 and is expected to fill the hole left by all-star guard Sherron Collins. Selby is rated as the #1 overall recruit in the 2010 class by Rivals.com.[1] Shooting guard Royce Woolridge of Phoenix, AZ., who committed to Kansas in 2009, also joins the team in the fall as a freshman and ranks in Rivals.com's Top 150 recruit list as well.

Zach Peters of Plano, TX. made an early verbal commitment to Kansas on April 21 for the 2012–2013 season. The 6-foot-9, 235 pound forward was still in his sophomore year at the time. He chose Kansas over his 3 other choices: Texas, Kentucky & North Carolina.

On October 12, 4-star point guard Naadir Tharpe signed a letter of intent to join the Jayhawks as a freshmen for the 2011–12 season. The 6 foot prep all-star chose Kansas after withdrawing from Providence.

Season summary[edit]

Highlights[edit]

  • The Jayhawks broke the KU home court winning streak record of 62 straight with their 63rd home win in a row over Texas A&M-CC on Nov. 23rd, 2010. The streak ended at 69 straight home wins with a defeat to Texas on January 22, 2011. The streak was the longest in NCAA basketball since 1992.
  • On December 10, David & Suzanne Booth purchased Dr. James Naismith's 13 Original Rules of the game at a Sotheby's auction in New York City for the sum of $4.3 million. They intend to bring the founding document of basketball back to Lawrence, KS., where it will likely be housed inside Allen Fieldhouse.
  • Josh Selby's debut with the Jayhawks on December 18 proved to be worth the buzz, with 21 points, including the game-winning 3 pointer to beat USC 70–68.
  • On January 15, Marcus Morris became the 53rd player in Jayhawks history to score 1000 career points.[9] The victory over Nebraska set a program record of 69 consecutive home wins.
  • With a win over Texas A&M on March 2, the Jayhawks clinched their 7th consecutive Big 12 title and an NCAA record-extending 54th overall.
  • With a win over Texas on March 12, the Jayhawks won their 8th Big 12 Conference Tournament Championship, 25th overall conference tournament championship all-time. The win also officially clinched a birth in the NCAA tournament.
  • On March 13, the NCAA Selection Committee named Kansas a #1 seed for the 10th time in school history. They would face 16 seed Boston University on Friday March 18.
  • Reserve forward Thomas Robinson (basketball) made national headlines when, in less than a month's time, his grandparents and mother all died, leaving his sister, Jayla, an orphan. The NCAA granted waivers to the University of Kansas to provide assistance to Thomas and Jayla, enabling Thomas to make sure his sister was cared for while he was still in college.
