LAWRENCE, Kan. — The Kansas Jayhawks are looking for win number seven as they get ready for the Hoophall Miami Invitational. First up will be Syracuse. 

What's so special about Kansas right now? Five of their starters are averaging double figures, which is pretty rare, but it all goes back to chemistry and how well this team is playing together.

"I do think our chemistry offensively has been pretty good,” said Head Coach Bill Self. "That sounds like coach’s speak, but that's important. I think they like playing with each other, so if a guy feels like he's being frozen out and he's not going to make the pass on target. I think all teams go through that throughout a season. Right now our chemistry is really good; we're sharing the ball."

KU has been an offensive juggernaut, averaging 94 points per game in the Big 12. They rank 7th in the nation in scoring average.

The last time KU averaged more than 90 points a game was back in 2001. 

It's not just the offensive production. Kansas ranks 5th in the country in both offensive and defensive efficiency. 

It will all be on display on Saturday starting at 4:30 p.m. when they take on the Orangemen.
