10:11 AM ET 02.09 | They talked it out the old way. In the locker room. Everybody getting a chance to speak. A team meeting in the most traditional sense. "Everybody got a little say-so," freshman guard Ben McLemore said. The Kansas Jayhawks had decided to meet on Thursday, just a day after they left TCU with a humiliating defeat. They had become the first Kansas team to lose two consecutive games in seven years -- an amazing feat, of course -- but also one that made the past week all the more jarring. So on Thursday, as the unpleasant highlights beamed across the country, and college basketball's talking heads wondered if this was the biggest upset in decades, the Jayhawks bonded together for an impromptu meeting and film session. A day later, McLemore could hardly remember what was said. It was mostly about little things. The seniors said they'd been in this position before -- or something close. And McLemore, KU's leading scorer, told his teammates he wanted to take on a larger leadership role.
