Photos: Trey Songz Hangs With Self, KU Hoops

John Calipari has Drake, Rick Pitino has Pitbull and Tom Crean has Young Jeezy. It stands to reason that Kansas’ Bill Self didn’t want to be left out of the pantheon of college basketball coach-rapper friendships.
Perhaps that explains why Self was shooting the breeze with Trey Songz behind the Jayhawks bench in the waning moments of their 92-81 victory over Iowa State on Wednesday night. As well as why the three-time Grammy nominee posed for photos with the team in the locker room after the game.
In actuality, Trey Songz was in Allen Fieldhouse to watch KU freshman and fellow Petersburg, VA, native Frank Mason in action, according to Self. Not that the Jayhawks head coach minds making a new famous friend.
“Bottom’s up,” Self said in response to a reporter asking if he is a big Trey Songz fan.
