Despite Kane's words, that might be tough to avoid.
The Herd is winless in nine true road games this season and has lost a dozen in a row on the road dating back to last season.
In fact, the last true road win came one year ago today, a 73-68 win at SMU.
During that 12-game road skid, opponents have beaten the Herd by an average of 17.8 points per game.
It's worse this season. MU is losing by an average of 19.8 points on the road.
Kane and the Herd might be able to steer this season toward a winning one if it can avoid some of its own maladies in Saturday night's loss to Memphis.
The visiting Tigers had four separate runs of six points in the first half, including an 11-0 spurt. The 17-point halftime lead for Memphis marked the eighth consecutive game the Herd hasn't led at intermission.
Perhaps Kane sees beyond the opposition's runs and offensive droughts.
Consider this: Memphis' 11-point run in the first half lasted 5:38. Combine the other 34 minutes and 22 seconds Saturday night with the Tigers' one-point win over Marshall last month, and Memphis outscored the Herd by just three points in nearly 75 minutes of competition.
It's a little bit of spin, but that is what Kane is hanging his Jordans on.
He sees the flashes.
"We're not giving up," he said. "We're going out to win every game here on out. It doesn't matter who we play.
"The year's not over. We can still make a crazy run. We're the most talented, most athletic team in this conference. Strong. Physical. I'm not changing mind mind.
"I feel like we're the best team in this conference, we're just not putting the pieces together."
