LAWRENCE — While playing in a tournament in the Virgin Islands over Thanksgiving, Bonnie Henrickson asked her team two pertinent questions.
“Raise your hand right now,” she said, “if you think you don’t play well, we have a chance to win?”
Not one player raised their hand. Every Kansas player thought they had to play well to win.
Then she asked her returning players to raise their hands if they felt they didn’t have to play well last year to still win games.
Every upperclassman for Kansas raised their hands.
