That’s three losses in six games for the Jayhawks, who have hit a wall thanks to some cold shooting and a lot of horrific defensive execution. For the first time in five years, they lost to the Baylor Bears, and it wasn’t particularly close. The consequences included dropping out of first place in the Big 12 race. Is it time to sound the panic alarms about the potential end of “The Streak”?

They’re still a No. 2 seed in the four-weeks-out bracket projection, but there’s no doubt that Kansas has some work to do to hang on to a seed that high in the coming weeks. They’ll next take on the Iowa State Cyclones in Ames as they look for their first sweep of ISU since 2012-13. We break down what needs to happen for the Jayhawks to get back on track, and we’re all in agreement that Tuesday is a must-win game for the sake of 14 straight.
