The 2016–17 Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball team represented the University of Kansas in the 2016–17 NCAA Division I men's basketball season, which was the Jayhawks' 119th basketball season. The Jayhawks, members of the Big 12 Conference, played their home games at Allen Fieldhouse and were led by 14th year head coach Bill Self. They finished the season 31–5, 16–2 in Big 12 play to win their 13th consecutive Big 12 regular season title, tying UCLA's record for consecutive regular season conference titles.[1] They lost in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tournament to TCU. They received and at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament as a No. 1 seed in the Midwest region. The appearance was their 28th consecutive appearance, the longest current active streak and the longest ever in NCAA Tournament history.[2] In the Tournament, they defeated UC Davis and Michigan State to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. There they defeated Purdue before losing in the Elite Eight to Oregon.

The Jayhawks entered the season with 40 straight wins at Allen Fieldhouse, which extended to 51 games during the season before it ended on February 5, 2017 with an 89–92 loss to Iowa State, which was the longest active home arena winning streak in the nation when it ended.[3][4]
