I saw that Kansas University's men's basketball team, in falling to 3-3 on the season after its loss Saturday to Oregon, was off to its worst start since the 1979-80 team. Can you provide some details about that team?
KU lost to Oral Roberts, Southern Methodist and Kentucky and beat Nevada-Reno, San Diego State and California-Bakersfield in opening the season 3-3. KU beat Birmingham-Southern in the seventh game of the season before suffering a two-game losing streak. The Jayhawks, coached by Ted Owens, finished the year with a 15-14 record. Darnell Valentine was the leading scorer on that team with a 16.5-point average.
