Here are five thoughts from Saturday: 1. We might as well start referring to Kansas as the Comeback Kids… It’s better to be lucky than good, but the fact that Kansas completed two remarkable comebacks over Top-10 opponents in a single week is no fluke. The Jayhawks don’t get rattled when they’re down and they know how to win close games, two complementary traits that should go a long way for Bill Self and company come March.

4. Once again, Baylor was done in by coughing up the rock… We warned you of Baylor’s poor turnover habits in the Weekend Shootaround. Well, the Bears’ Achilles’ heel reared its ugly head once again on Saturday, as Kansas converted 16 Baylor turnovers into 20 points. Motley was the main culprit, committing six turnovers all by his lonesome. As much of a death sentence as this is for Baylor—the Bears are 286th in Turnover Rate out of 351 Division-1 teams—Kansas’ defense deserves some credit.
