Saturday is a sunny and mild December day in Lawrence as our #7AP/#5 Coaches Kansas Jayhawks host the North Dakota State University Bison for another ALLEN FIELDHOUSE...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!!

Our Jayhawks (3-1, 0-0) and the Bison (0-3, 0-0) tip off at 3 p.m. (CT) on ESPN+, Dave Armstrong (play-by-play) and Nick Bahe (analyst) our talking heads.

CBSSports.com: College Basketball Rankings (AP, Coaches, CBS 25+1, NET)

ESPN's Basketball Power Index favors Kansas 97.1% to 2.9%, with an estimated 24 point winning margin.

KUAthletics: Game Preview - Jayhawks to Host Bison Saturday Afternoon
KUAthletics.com Game Day Notes
NB: Just a reminder as we move deeper into this COVID19 afflicted season that the Game Day Notes are darned impressive. This edition contains thirty two (32) pages comprising a media – and fan – mini-mother lode of KU info. Check it out! Included below are some of the current neato keeno tidbits for ya! (Is it not nifty?)

• Through four games, Kansas has had four different players lead the team in scoring and steals.
• Kansas has been ranked in each of the last 222 Associated Press polls dating back to 2008-09. The 222-consecutive weeks in the AP poll is an all-time record, surpassing UCLA’s 221 from 1966-80. KU holds the same streak in the coaches’ poll at 229.
• This season, Kansas men’s basketball will be wearing a patch that reads “UNITED WE STAND” signifying its stance on the recent social injustice in the United States. The patch has gold lettering with the black background being in the shape of the state of Kansas.
• With its win against Saint Joseph’s (11/27), Kansas improved to 97-13following a loss in the Bill Self era, which started in 2003-04, including 3-0 last season in 2019-20. Incredibly, KU has been even more efficient over the last six-plus seasons, amassing a record of 46-5 after losses.
• Kansas’ last six losses have been to ranked foes, with three of those in the top five.
• Senior Marcus Garrett was named to the Wooden Award Preseason Top 50 on Dec. 1. Garrett has been named to every national player of the year watch list for 2020-21.
• Redshirt-senior Mitch Lightfoot posted three blocked shots against Washburn (12/3) and became the 21st player in KU history to record 100 career blocks, currently at 102.
• With its 89-54 win against Washburn in Allen Fieldhouse on Dec. 3, the Jayhawks have won a mind-boggling 48-straight home openers beginning in 1973-74 under head coach Ted Owens.


Hope you have a great day, and as always, be safe out there *and* be a potentially life saving hero -- MASKS ON!
A life is a terrible thing to waste. (A PSA from your friendly neighborhood retired Army Medical Service Corps Jayhawk.)

And it's against Omaha. Without looking it up, I would think they're a DII school. Nothing wrong with that of course, but if they are, pretty cool that they're still televising the game nationally.

D1, Summit League

From the University of Nebraska - Omaha Wikipedia page..
=====================
The university's sports teams, branded as "Omaha", have been nicknamed the Mavericks since 1971.[36] In 2011, 13 of the 16 sports that the university then sponsored moved from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division I and The Summit League. The exceptions were men's ice hockey, which already competed in Division I; and football and wrestling, both of which UNO dropped. Wrestling had been the school's most successful sport with national championships in 1991, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2011.[37] The Omaha men's ice hockey team, the state's only Division I ice hockey program, became charter members of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference in 2011 with play beginning in the 2013–14 season, following a major conference realignment. Previously, Omaha had been in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association since 2010–11. Omaha added teams in men's golf and men's soccer in 2011.
=====================

Noting with some amazement that in 2011 they dropped wrestling, the sport in which they had excelled, winning 7 NCs in the previous 21 seasons from 1991 thru 2011.

ESPN: Nebraska Omaha faces tough test v #5 Kansas

KUAD Game Preview: Omaha

KUAD Game Notes: Nebraska Omaha
Some highlights from the 33 pages of KU goodness...
• #5/5 Kansas continues its five-game homestand.
• The 73-72 win against #8/7 Creighton on Dec. 8 in Allen Fieldhouse improved Kansas to 15-3 against Associated Press
top-10 teams at home in the Bill Self era.
• Through six games, Kansas has had four different players lead the team in scoring and five in steals. This includes ties for the team high.
• Kansas has been ranked in each of the last 223 Associated Press polls dating back to 2008-09. The 223-consecutive weeks in the AP poll is an all-time record, surpassing UCLA’s 221 from 1966-80. KU holds the same streak in the coaches’ poll at 230.
• Kansas has been ranked in the top 10 in each of the last 22 polls dating back the first poll of the 2019-20 season.

• Redshirt-freshman Jalen Wilson has led KU in scoring three of the last four games posting 23 points against two ranked foes - #20 Kentucky and #8 Creighton.

Nebraska Omaha Game Notes: Kansas

Some interesting Mavericks tidbits from their Game Notes...
• Friday's tilt marks the second time the Mavericks have faced two ranked opponents in the same season (they lost to #9 Creighton 94-67 back on December 1). . The last was 2017-18 with No. 18 Louisville and No. 13 Kansas, 31 days apart.
• F Matt Pile owns the third-most total rebounds nationally. His 761 career rebounds are the sixth-most of any active player in
NCAA Division I, and his 22 career double-doubles are the 12th-most.
• Pile needs 21 points to become the 42nd 1,000-point scorer in Maverick history.
• The Mavericks have a 10-game non-conference slate, all on the road from Nov. 25 to Dec. 29. During that time, their
home facility, Baxter Arena, will serve as the host site for the NCHC Pod, with 38 hockey games held Dec. 1-21.
• Omaha plays 18 of its 26 games away from Baxter Arena this season.
• Omaha was picked fourth in the Summit League's preseason poll. Pile was a first-team Preseason All-Summit
selection, and Marlon Ruffin was a second-team pick.

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL NIGHT!

#5/5 KU (6-1, 0-0) travels to Lubbock to play #14/14 Texas Tech (6-1, 0-0). TV Game voices will be Dan Shulman (play-by-play) and Jay Bilas (analyst), KU radio voices will be Brian Hanni (play-by-play) and Greg Gurley (analyst).

The ESPN pregame prediction favors Tech 2 to 1, spotting KU just a 32.9% chance of winning in Lubbock. ESPN Pick Center write up is not yet available as I write this, but searching elsewhere on the web the spread looks to be low, [EDIT] 2 points in Tech's favor link

• This season, Kansas men’s basketball will be wearing a patch that reads “UNITED WE STAND” signifying its stance on the recent social injustice in the United States. The patch has gold lettering with the black background being in the shape of the state of Kansas.

Some interesting Red Raiders tidbits from the Tech TT Game Notes Game Notes...
OVERALL: Kansas leads 37-6
LAST MEETING: No. 1 Kansas won 66-62 (3/7/2020 - Lubbock)
NOTES: The Jayhawks won both meetings in the series last season after the two programs had split the previous two
years. Tech earned a 91-62 win over KU at home on Feb. 23, 2019.
HC CHRIS BEARD: Earned his 100th win at Texas Tech last Saturday against A&M-Corpus Christi
A CONVERSATION PATCH: Texas Tech will have a patch on its jersey all season that was the idea of Kyler Edwards with collaboration from his teammates. The patch depicts a rotten apple core and is described by Edwards as:
“The team wanted to make a patch that was unique and not just something that everyone else had. We want to get rid of all the bad apples in all walks of life, including police brutality, sexism and racism. These are topics around the world and we have the support of our coaches. We need to keep talking about it until it gets fixed.” The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules to allow student-athletes in all sports to wear patches on their uniforms for commemorative and memorial purposes, as well as to support social justice issues.

KUAD Game Notes: v WVU
Some highlights from the 36 pages of Jayhawks goodness...

• Kansas has won seven straight since losing its season opener to No. 1 Gonzaga and is coming off a 58-57 win at No. 14/14 Texas Tech on Dec.17. Kansas’ seven-game winning streak is tied for the 11th longest in NCAA Division I. West Virginia has won its last four games after its 70-65 win against Iowa State on Dec. 18.
• With the win at Texas Tech (12/17), Kansas has won 30-straight conference openers dating back to the 1991-92 season, with 12 of those at home and 18 on the road. The last time KU lost a league opener was at Oklahoma, 88-82, on Jan. 8, 1991.
• West Virginia will be the fifth ranked team Kansas will play so far in 2020-2 1. The Jayhawks are 3-1 versus ranked foes this season and the three wins tie for the most against ranked teams this season, along with Gonzaga. KU is 1-1 versus top-10 teams in 2020-21.
• Through eight games, Kansas has had five different players lead the team in scoring and eight in steals. This includes ties for the team high.
• Kansas has been ranked in each of the last 224 Associated Press polls dating back to 2008-09. The 224-consecutive weeks in the AP poll is an all-time record, surpassing UCLA’s 221 from 1966-80. KU holds the same streak in the coaches’ poll at 230.
• Kansas has been ranked in the top 10 in each of the last 23 Associated Press polls dating back the first poll of the 2019-20 season.
• Kansas’ last six losses have been to ranked foes, with three of those in the top five.
• This season, Kansas men’s basketball will be wearing a patch that reads “UNITED WE STAND” signifying its stance on the recent social injustice in the United States. The patch has gold lettering with the black background being in the shape of the state of Kansas.
