Kansas basketball coach Bill Self will miss the remainder of the Big 12 tournament after being hospitalized for a medical procedure. Self was unable to coach the Jayhawks in their game against West Virginia on Thursday and will not be able to attend any further games.
According to CBS Sports, Self was hospitalized on Thursday and will be recovering for the remainder of the tournament. It is unclear when he will be able to return to coaching.
This news comes as a blow to the Jayhawks, who have struggled this year after several key players left the team. Self has been the coach of Kansas since 2003 and has led the team to 14 consecutive NCAA tournaments.
Despite the setback, Mountaineer Nation is excited as West Virginia continues to play well in March. The team has won five of their last six games and are hoping to make a deep run in the tournament.
