   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The 2010/11 NCAA Tournament, Part 1: Southwestern Region

If you include Jeff Withey - the capable 7 footer who would be a lynchpin in a lesser program, yet who barely gets off the bench for the Jayhawks - then Kansas are 11 deep. They are particularly deep in the backcourt, so much so that Elijah Johnson - a high quality guard with very good defense, jumpshooting, size, athleticism and open court play who is probably better than both Selby and Releford - struggled to find minutes until Tyshawn Taylor was suspended.

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
