(KUATHLETICS) Preseason ranked No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, Kansas returns nine letter winners from last season's team which went 31-6 and won an NCAA-best 56th, the 13th Big 12 and an unprecedented ninth-straight regular-season conference title. The Jayhawks also won the Big 12 postseason championship, KU's ninth in the Big 12 and 13th all-time.
 
Sophomore forward Perry Ellis is KU's leading returning scorer at 5.8 points per game and rebounder at 3.9 boards per contest in 2012-13. Ellis came on strong down the stretch for KU last season being named to the Big 12 Championship All-Tournament Team.
Junior guard Naadir Tharperanked 12th in the Big 12 in assists per game at 3.1. He averaged 5.5 points per outing.
Redshirt sophomore forward Jamari Traylor (2.1 ppg, 2.1 rpg) averaged nearly 10 minutes per game for KU in 2012-13. Sophomore guard Andrew White IIIscored 2.2 points per game and has proven he can be a three-point threat for the Jayhawks.
Redshirt freshman forward Landen Lucas could also have an immediate impact having been in the KU system for one season. Look for forward Justin Wesley and guard Niko Robertsto also provide leadership heading into their senior campaigns.
 
Reloading in a hurry from losing five starters from 2012-13, Self and his staff welcome eight newcomers to the 2013-14 roster, including the nation's No. 1 recruit in guard Andrew Wiggins.
A transfer from Memphis, senior forward Tarik Black will provide leadership for his final year of playing collegiately. Assisting on the inside will be 7-foot freshman center Joel Embiid. Joining Wiggins on the perimeter are newcomers Conner Frankamp, Brannen Greene, Frank Maosn and Wayne Selden Jr. Forward Hunter Mickelson will sit out 2013-14 after transferring from Arkansas. He will be a junior for the Jayhawks in 2014-15. Together, KU's class of 2013 comprises the second-ranked recruiting class in the country.
