Summary
Jason King's latest project examines what ESPN analyst Jay Bilas has pegged as "arguably the most remarkable achievement in the history of sport" - Kansas' record 13-straight Big 12 titles. The story of each of the Jayhawks' championship seasons is told through the eyes of more than 100 KU players and coaches-and also their opponents. It's a lens into the locker rooms, huddles, dormitories, practice gyms and coaching offices of the most consistent college basketball program in America. Here are a handful of questions answered inside: *Why was it so agonizing for Bill Self to leave Illinois for Kansas in 2003? *How did Mario Chalmers know the Jayhawks would win the 2008 NCAA title two years before it happened? *What did Sherron Collins dump over the balcony of a Holiday Inn in Columbia, Missouri? *What was Texas' Kevin Durant doing two hours before his historic 2007 game at Allen Fieldhouse? *Why was Missouri's Kim English secretly rooting for Thomas Robinson to make a key free throw in the final edition of the Border War? *Why did Joel Embiid weep as he sat in Norm Roberts' office after his freshman season? *How did Frank Mason go from an obscure recruit to the first AP National POY in Kansas history? Plus: Oral histories on epic wins over Oklahoma State (2005), Texas (2007), Missouri (2012), at Iowa State (2013), Oklahoma (2016) and West Virginia (2017); perspective on the streak from Kevin Durant, Jacob Pullen, Georges Niang, Acie Law, Scott Drew, Frank Martin, Fred Hoiberg and other opponents; more than 25 lists ranking the top 10 players, games and moments in the streak's 13-year history; stats and key box scores from every season; a "Where Are They Now" section with updates from your favorite KU legends. Entertaining, enlightening-and, at times, moving-"Beyond the Streak" is more than a Kansas basketball book. It's an encyclopedia for every Jayhawks fan
