Following a disappointing road loss to West Virginia, Kansas basketball will need to shift their mindset to stopping shots outside the arc.

Coming up short in Morgantown, Kansas basketball is still in the hole. While their offensive action has seemingly picked up the pace, the Jayhawks’ defense has plagued their ability to compete in the final minutes.

WVU sophomore Miles McBride handed Kansas a rough finish yesterday, going 4 of 5 from the outside and posting 29 points.
