ESPN selected Udoka Azubuike and Devon Dotson as First-Team All-Americans, and Marcus Garrett was awarded the Defensive Player of the Year honor. Kansas basketball was the only team to have multiple players on either the First or Second-Team, which further confirms just how much better they were this season than even the elite teams.
Another interesting note is that the Jayhawks played against multiple award winners this season:
- Anthony Grant (Dayton), Coach of the Year
- Vernon Carey Jr.
