Kansas Jayhawks Basketball History


The Kansas Jayhawks are one of the most storied basketball programs of all time. They began play in 1898 under legendary coach Dr. James Naismith. Naismith is often credited with founding basketball and the rules of the sport. The Jayhawks won 31 regular basketball season conference championships and one NCAA Championship from 1908-1960. Additionally, they made the final four and elite 8 multiple times.

In 1964, Ted Owens became head coach. Owens was at the helm until 1983. During his tenure, the Jayhawks won the Big Eight Conference six times. They also made the final four on four different occasions. There were a few losing seasons sprinkled in during his tenure. Owens ended his career at Kansas with a 348-182 overall record and seven tournament appearances. Owens was relieved of his duties after the 1982-1983 season.

Legendary coach Larry Brown took over after Owens. The Jayhawks won one conference championship during Brown’s tenure but finished second multiple times. The Jayhawks had a long-standing 55-home-game win streak. The streak was broken in 1988 against their archrivals Kansas State.

Fortunately for the Jayhawks, the win brought them closer, and they went on to win the National Championship. Power forward Danny Manning was one of the best players in the country during this time. He finished his career at Kansas with nearly 3,000 career points. The Jayhawks made the tournament five times under Brown. Brown finished his career at Kansas with a 135-44 and left Kansas during the 1988-1989 season.

Brown was followed up by another legendary coach: Roy Williams. Williams coached the Jayhawks until 2003. Though the Jayhawks didn’t win a championship under Williams, they were very successful.

They appeared in the tournament in 14 of his 15 seasons at the helm. They made the sweet sixteen four times, the elite eight once, the final four twice and they were tournament runner-ups twice. The Jayhawks were unstoppable at home. They won 62 home games in a row from 1994 until 1998.

The Kansas Jayhawks standings dominated their conference during Williams’ tenure. They won five Big Eight Championships. In 1996, the Big 12 was formed, and the Jayhawks joined. They went on to win four Big 12 Championships under Williams.

After the 2003 season, Williams decided to take the head coaching job at the University of North Carolina. 

Best Under Self

Bill Self has been the head coach at Kansas since 2003. The Jayhawks have been the best team in the Big 12 since Self arrived. They’ve won 16 Big 12 Championships under Self.

Additionally, they’ve made the NCAA tournament in each of his seasons at the helm. The Jayhawks have won 30 games 10 times, made the Final Four three times, the Elite Eight five times, the Sweet Sixteen two times, and the championship three times.

The 2007-2008 team was especially special. They finished with a 37-3 overall record and won the National Championship against Memphis. The game came down to the last few seconds, where guard Mario Chalmers rose and made one of the biggest jump shots in college basketball history to secure the championship.

In 2022, the Jayhawks returned to the championship for the first time in 10 seasons. The Jayhawks posed the most complete basketball team in the entire country. Led by guards Christian Braun and Ochai Agbaji, the Jayhawks put together an impressive run en route to winning the National Championship.

The Jayhawks have had multiple players go on to play professionally during Self’s stint. Superstar center Joel Embiid attended Kansas from 2013-2014. Embiid declared for the draft and was drafted third overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2014 NBA draft. Andrew Wiggins also played at Kansas from 2013-2014. He averaged 17 points and also declared for the 2014 NBA draft. He was drafted first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers and traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
