Why two coaches had different thoughts on Josh Jackson after KU’s win

Bill Self is never satisfied. At his radio show this week, the Kansas men’s basketball coach talked up Frank Mason’s play before stopping himself, pointing out that the senior guard has flaws too. He gives compliments about his players in postgame media sessions, but oftentimes, those come with subtle critiques at the end. Knowing this helps explain the contrast in Josh Jackson quotes following KU’s 87-80 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday.
