In a disappointing season opener, Bill Self and Kansas basketball dropped their first game of the year to Duke 68-66. The Jayhawks played good enough to win but struggled with just one statistical category: turnovers.
Kansas finished the game with a whopping 28 turnovers, three shy from a school record set back in 1988. It was an ugly sight, but the Jayhawks actually played pretty well otherwise.
Kansas shot 44% from the field and 36% from three, both better percentages than Duke’s. The Jayhawks also outrebounded the Blue Devils 44-34 and even made more free throws.
