TEMPE, Ariz. — Top-ranked Kansas was upset Saturday night by No. 18 Arizona State, but to Jayhawks coach Bill Self, the 80-76 loss came at the right time.

“I think that losing sucks, and it’s never good, but it actually can be a positive if you learn from it so that it doesn’t happen again the same way,” Self said. “We didn’t close the game right at all, so hopefully, we can learn from that. But the reality of it is, we weren’t going to run the table. Let’s not get carried away.

“I hate saying this, you never ever want to lose, but certainly you’d rather learn from a nonconference loss than a conference loss. So hopefully, we’ll learn something from it and get better from it. I think it’ll be a good teaching tape for us.”
