From Kansas City Star Books ... here's the season-long story of the remarkable, resilient University of Kansas Jayhawks. The Jayhawks finished their season on April 2, 2012, with a loss to the Kentucky Wildcats in the championship game of the NCAA Tournament. But a season cannot be measured strictly by the last loss. The measure of a team is in its heart, its attitude and resiliency. By those measures, this team ended its season as winners. This book, Comeback Kids, recaps a remarkable season that began with doubts and question marks and ended on college basketball's biggest stage. This was a team that took on the nation's best opponents and beat most of them. This was a team that discovered its own weaknesses and overcame them. This team never said die. The book includes game stories and award-winning photos from the entire season, plus commentary by Sam Mellinger.
