Since 1992, KU has played a top 5 team 49 times including twice this season. In those games, KU has outranked the opponent in 13 of those 49 games and been outranked in 36. Prior to the game last night, the best KU has ever done in rebounding is a 15 rebound margin which they did 3 times. The best KU has ever done in rebound margin against a top 5 team when KU was ranked outside the top 10 was in 11/2011 when No. 12 Kansas lost to No. 2 Kentucky. The lowest rank Kansas has had is in March 2000 when KU was unranked and played No. 1 Duke. But the next lowest rank was 15 when No. 15 KU played No. 3 Oklahoma in Feb, 2009. Last night, Kansas shattered their rebound margin record against a top 25 team with a rebound margin of 20. Rebounding is a large part toughness and determination. That is what I saw last night from these Jayhawks. I hope they can keep it up.
Don't worry about the mules, just load the wagon!!
