Kansas rallied past the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday at Sprint Center behind a huge second-half surge. The Jayhawks showed just how scary they can be in that game, but are they the best team in the Big 12? After a weekend that saw Big 12 teams pull off Top 5 upsets and impressive victories, we’re not so sure.

Inside the Paint logo.Perry Ellis isn’t putting up the numbers that people expected him to this year, but is that okay when the rest of this Kansas team is doing so much scoring? Who should start at center for the Jayhawks? Who is their biggest challenger in the Big 12? And if we had to assign an emoji for certain KU players, who would Frank Mason, Perry Ellis, and Bill Self get?

After taking #AskRCB questions, we preview Kansas’ game this week against…nobody. We’ll be back on Friday to preview Montana and get everybody ready for the holiday season. Happy Finals!
