The program is classified in the NCAA's Division I, and the team competes in the Big 12 Conference.

A perennial conference powerhouse, Kansas leads all universities with 51 regular-season conference titles in 100 years of conference play through the 2007-2008 regular season, two more than the second place Kentucky Wildcats.

The men's team has had several notable coaches, beginning play during the 1898–1899 season under head coach James Naismith. In 1907, KU hired one of Naismith's players, Dr. Forrest C.Phog Allen as head coach. This was after Naismith's infamous advice in 1906, "You don't coach basketball, Forrest, you play it". Allen would go on to coach at the school for 39 seasons and amass a record of 590-219, with two Helms Foundation national titles and one NCAA Tournament championship. Allen would later be called the "Father of Basketball Coaching", having passed on his knowledge of the game to some of the most well-respected names in the history of college basketball, including National Basketball Hall of Fame coaches Adolph Rupp, Dean Smith, Dutch Lonborg, John McLendon, and Ralph Miller.

Notable games

  • In the NCAA title game in 1957, Wilt Chamberlain and Kansas fell to the North Carolina Tar Heels 54-53 in triple overtime in what many consider to be the greatest NCAA Championship game ever played. Feeling that he let down the fans and his teammates, Chamberlain would not return to Lawrence and Allen Fieldhouse until January 17, 1998, to see his jersey retired.
  • On December 9, 1989, AP #2 Kansas beat Kentucky 150-95 in Allen Fieldhouse. Kansas started the game hot and was in obvious control prior to halftime, Kentucky's Rick Pitino used all of his team's five timeouts before the half ended. After the break, Kansas coach Roy Williams started the second rotation players and subbed in the remaining players on the roster often, leaving the starting five players on the bench. When Pitino continued to have his first string players use a full-court pressure defense against the Kansas back-ups, Williams (reportedly following an obscene gesture made towards Pitino), called a timeout and told his team that the starting five players would be going back into the game and that they were to run up the score as high as possible. Two technical fouls were called on Pitino, the first for throwing a towel onto the court, the second for arguing a call with an official. Following the game, Pitino told the assembled media that he would never schedule Kansas again.
  • On March 3, 2007, Kansas recorded its 1,900th all-time program victory and won its 50th conference title against the Kevin Durant-led Texas Longhorns, 90-86. Texas led 54-42 at the half and led by as many as 16 early in the match.
  • On April 7, 2008, Kansas beat Memphis for its third National Title 75-68. Mario Chalmers hit "The Shot" with 2.1 seconds left in regulation to force overtime where KU was eventually victorious.
