Kansas head coach Bill Self will miss his team’s second-round game of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, less than a week after he was discharged from the hospital following a heart procedure.
Norm Roberts will lead the No. 1 Jayhawks (28-7) against No. 8 Arkansas (21-13) in West Region action in Des Moines, Iowa.
Roberts will be coaching his fifth straight game. The Jayhawks defeated No. 16 Howard 96-68 on Thursday.
Self has been active in team practices.
On March 8, Self went to the hospital “complaining of chest tightness and balance concerns,” the school said previously.
Self, 60, underwent a standard heart catheterization and had two stents placed for treatment of blocked arteries. The school denied late last week that Self had a heart attack.
Either Kansas or Arkansas will advance to meet the winner of the game between No. 4 UConn and No. 5 St. Mary’s next weekend in the Sweet 16 at Las Vegas.
