Jayhawks, Self are on guard about team's defense

A veteran coach who prides himself on hardscrabble toughness and suffocating defense seems to have a team that is incapable of being elite in either category. It's been frustrating, Kansas coach Bill Self says. As March approaches, the defensive questions still linger. Why do opponents keep shooting better than 40 percent against KU? Why are the stops such a challenge? By now, the numbers suggest this is the worst defensive team of the 11-year Self era at Kansas.
