Bill Self NCAA Championships: Kansas coach seeks 2nd nationa title

Self has one national title to his credit. Back in 2008, the Jayhawks defeated the Memphis Tigers 75-68 in overtime.

The head coach for Kansas did make it to the National Final in 2012, but they lost 67-56 to the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats.

If the pandemic didn’t see the NCAA Tournament canceled in 2020, Self may have won the national championship that year.

Self will look to win the second national title of his career on Monday night. They will have to see whether it will come against the Tar Heels or the Blue Devils that are rallying behind head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who is set to retire at the end of the season.
