08:18 AM ET 11.21 | Considering Duke's success and the fact they're the highest-ranking team in the tournament, Bill Self's assessment is no great surprise. If Kansas wants to win the Maui Invitational, the Jayhawks might have to accomplish something that hasn't been done in the tournament's 27-year history. KU will have to beat Duke, or hope someone else does. The Blue Devils are 12-0 in Maui under coach Mike Krzyzewski with four tournament titles, the most recent coming in 2007. "Call it like it is: He's won more games than anybody," [Self] said. "He's the best our sport has ever had to offer, but he's also had some really good players, too. They will be the odds-on favorite again this year to win it."

Delusional Vol homer response: No way, Bill - that's not possible. The Vols win in Maui at 5:30 EST today against the Blue Devils. Bet the house, baby.
