The Jayhawks come up short of the Final Four for the second-straight season, losing to the Oregon Ducks by a final score of 74-60. The locker room was silent as players reflected on the game.
“We felt like we had all the pieces to the puzzle just didn’t get, you know, to the Final Four,” junior guard Devonte’ Graham said. “You know we just came up short today.”
“Every team that makes a run in this tournament, gets one crappy game where stuff just doesn’t go well for them, but you gotta win that game no matter what, and this was our one game, unfortunately,” freshman guard Josh Jackson said. “And we didn’t win.”
The freshman standout was also asked about the next step in his playing career.
“I just lost one of the toughest games of my life,” Jackson said. “I haven’t thought about anything outside of that.”
Kansas ends its season posting a record of 31-5.
