Kansas head coach Bill Self began his postgame news conference on Wednesday by apologizing to the Kansas State team.
“I’d like to first apologize to the K-State team and their program, coaches, players, for the unsportsmanlike act that one of our players did at the end of the game that was totally classless. So, I guarantee it will never happen again. So, I apologize about that.”
This came after Kansas’ Brannen Greene dunked the ball at the end of the game.
According to The Topeka Capital-Journal, Self also addressed the dunk in a postgame radio interview saying,
“Brannen Greene, we’ve put up with him doing some stuff in the past, but that was probably the biggest d--- move I’ve ever had a player do during a game. To dunk the ball like that when the other team – even their players are going, ‘How disrespectful to the game.’ It certainly showed unbelievably poor sportsmanship.”
The seventh-ranked Kansas beat K-State with a 77-59 victory.
The Associated Press reports Self said during the postgame conference, "I'll be candid, they outplayed us. They beat us to loose balls, they outhustled us. ... That's about as soft as I can remember one of our teams playing."
