Now ranked No. 1 in the nation, the Kansas basketball team secured the program’s 13th consecutive Big 12 title three games ago. Playing for pride and a possible No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament at this point, the Jayhawks (27-3 overall, 15-2 Big 12) wrap up the regular season on the road against another team bound for March Madness, Oklahoma State (20-10, 9-8).

Between the three of them, they’ve scored 2,298 career points, and while Frank Mason III is responsible for the bulk of those numbers, the veteran point guard, center Landen Lucas and walk-on Tyler Self all figure to be in for an emotional Monday night. It’s the first time this season their Kansas Jayhawks (26-3 overall, 14-2 Big 12) will take the court as the No. 1 team in the nation, and it’s Senior Night for Mason, Lucas and Self — meaning it’s the last time they will play at Allen Fieldhouse. They’ll do so against an Oklahoma team (10-18, 4-12) that’s lost its last five Big 12 road games.
