Jayhawks coach believes Shockers deserve No. 1 seed, even if he still won't schedule them

Kansas coach Bill Self believes that unbeaten Wichita State deserves a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament if it beats Missouri State on Saturday and then wins the Missouri Valley tournament.

That doesn't mean he's changed his stance on scheduling the Shockers.

The subject was broached again Thursday. Self said he'll continue to schedule games solely in the best interest of Kansas, which means home games to pad the coffers and road games in places advantageous to recruiting.

That means marquee names such as Duke and Georgetown in places such as Chicago and New York.

Those clamoring for a Kansas-Wichita State game may be in luck. Many projections have the Shockers and Jayhawks as the top two seeds in the same region for the NCAA tournament.
