KU Sports Hour: Breaking down Kansas' wild run to the title, all that went into it & what comes next
After a month on the road with the 2022 national champions, Journal-World Sports Editor Matt Tait and new LJW sports reporter Zac Boyer look back at the Jayhawks' run to the title.
From where it began to what stood out, we look back at all of the highs and lows of the last month and the 2021-22 season. What went right? What went wrong? What went WHHAAAAT? And everything in between.
As you surely know by now, it all led to Kansas winning its last 11 games, including three straight in the Big 12 tournament to jump-start the run and six in a row in the NCAA Tournament.
From Fort Worth, Texas, to Chicago, Illinois, to New Orleans, Louisiana and all the way back home, the Jayhawks took their adoring fans on a wild ride and we were there to chronicle all of the important steps and big moments in stories, photos, videos and more.
Photographer extraordinaire Nick Krug joined us to capture some incredible and memorable images and the three of us brought all kinds of content to KUsports.com during the past month. In New Orleans alone, we posted nearly 70 separate pieces of content as the Jayhawks prepared for the ride that led them past Villanova in the Final Four and to a thrilling, comeback win over North Carolina in the national championship game on Monday night.
All of that and more is in this recap — Zac's first ever appearance on The KU Sports Hour — and now that he's out of the gate, we'll have plenty more of these ahead. Enjoy! And thanks so much for following along with all of our coverage and for your feedback and support.
