Kansas Basketball Game

New, 10 comments

Our Kansas friends at Oread Boom Kings have their take on Texas and the big game this Saturday.

There are some things at stake here:

- A win for Texas likely secures an avoidance of the dreaded 8/9 pairing in the NCAAs where we'd face North Carolina, Pitt or UConn in the 2nd round. If you're fanciful enough to believe we'll win our first rounder, that is

- We're playing Kansas. The conference measuring stick. The Longhorns have been the second best basketball program in the Big 12 by a wide margin, but the gap between 1st and 2nd is also. Start bridging it now.

- Beating KU at their place will do wonders for our confidence. When Justin Mason is missing three pointers off of the face of a mascot on the sideline, confidence is something we could use.

- It could allow us to secure a first round conference tournament bye.

- Mike Gminski is doing color for CBS. Gminski! He of the 6-11 frame, feathery jumper, and legume allergy to rebounds. Clint Chapman - mentor?
