NOTES TO SCHEDULE & RESULTS
This made 32 consecutive conference opening Ws (13 AFH, 19 Road). The last time Kansas lost a conference opener was at Oklahoma, 88-82, on 1991/01/08. The streak began with a huge 92-80 win at the Hearnes Center in the Hellmouth on 1992/01/13.

# THE SENIOR GAME sending off Kevin McCullar Jr and graduating 4th year redshirt junior Jalen Wilson. Also graduating but not speaking (because they might not be leaving) were Michael Jankovich, Cam Martin, Dajuan Harris Jr and .Joe Yesufu. (link)
The Jayhawks never lost a Senior Game in 20 years under
Larry Brown (5 seasons, 1983-88) and
Roy Williams (15 seasons, 1988-2003).

Bill Self's teams (20 seasons, 2003-2023) have expanded the streak to
40 years straight!

The last time KANSAS lost a Senior Game was on
Mar 2, 1983: NU 60 KU 58

Let’s see, KANSAS beat Creighton, Providence and Villanova...
Hey, I reckon that makes KANSAS Big East champs, too, right?

(Take that, Jim Boeheim, you whiny SOB.
Same to Carmelo, too!)

KANSAS plays NC State in the B4A (to be played in the Bahamas on 23, 24 and 25 November 2022.).
If they have published an actual bracket for the games so we could project Day 2 opponents, I haven't found it yet.

Upon further research, traditionally on Day 2 the contestants in the two early games on Day 1 (Games 1 & 2) play each other (winner v winner, loser v loser). The same scheme applies to the contestants in the two later Day 1 games (Games 3 & 4).

So if tradition holds, on Day 2 KANSAS will play either Dayton or Wisconsin and BYU will play either Butler or Tennessee.

Day1 G2: BYU v USC... who would have thought that this would basically be a Big 12 vs B1G contest?

And wouldn't it be wild if KANSAS plays BYU for the title on Day 3?

:woohoo:

KUAthletics.com: Battle for Atlantis

Confirms
Winner(loser) of KU v NCSt will play winner(loser) of Dayton v Wisconsin, while
Winner(loser) of BYU v USC will play winner(loser) of Butler v Tennessee.

My dream scenario after Day 1 games...

KU W v Dayton W (retribution for last year’s loss to the Flyers)
BYU W v Tennessee W (as I want our new B12 member and Rick Barnes to do well Day 1)

KU W v BYU W (just because)

KU wins B4A

Rock Chalk, Jayhawks!

An autumn day
in the late month of November...
The Bison roam far south from their home.
Gazing in the distance, lost there in the Phog
as they try to figure out just what went wrong...
They're in The Phog...
It's another Allen Fieldhouse...

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

The Bison of North Dakota State got pummeled by #10 Arkansas this past Monday, so for a breather they visit historic Allen Fieldhouse to play the #5 Jayhawks? Hmm, hmm, hmm... gotta love the paycheck, the exposure and the chance to place in the Mecca of College Basketball. I have to believe that the biggest threat to KU's chances of winning this game is the potential for the Jayhawks to be looking ahead to their next opponent (Duke on Tuesday, Nov 15 at the Champions Classic in Indianapolis) instead of focusing on the foe at hand.

The ESPN pregame matchup predictor says KU wins 96.9% of the time.

Here's the official KU Athletics pregame write up

Here's the KANSAS Game Notes, 35 pages of fun filled facts for the ardent Jayhawk fan!

KU 82
NDSU 59
ESPN: Wilson leads No. 5 Kansas to 82-59 rout of North Dakota St


2-0 as expected!

Now go get yourself an antiemetic because the next one up is Puke in the Champions Classic in Indianapolis on Tuesday, November 15. ESPN 7:30 CT

This will be the first time I can ever remember watching Kansas play Duke without ferret face on the enemy bench.

Moving right along…

Okay, there's a little more to say...

RCB - KU Men's Basketball historical links - KANSAS v Duke
For the first time in the history of their meetings, Coach Alphabet will not be scowling on the opposing bench.
Former Duke All-American and two-time team captain Jon Scheyer has replaced the retired Coach K.

Time to make that all time record read KANSAS 6, Duke 8

In the 11 seasons the Champions Classic has been played, KU has gone 6-5, but Duke has the best record at 7-4.
Kentucky is 5–6 and Michigan State 4–7.
Each team has at least one victory over each team in the classic.
KANSAS is the only team that does not have a losing record to one of the other three teams.
KANSAS was 1-4 in the first 5 games played (2011-2015), but starting with 2016 is 5-1.
The first KANSAS win came against Duke in 2013, and the last KANSAS loss came against Duke in 2019.
KANSAS has won in its last two appearances (2020 UK, 2021 Michigan State).
A third straight win this year will make KANSAS 3-1 versus Duke in the event, and tied with Duke at 7-5 for the best record in the event.
Wikipedia: State Farm Champions Classic

The ESPN pregame matchup predictor says KU wins 56.1%% of the time, with KANSAS favored in the game by 1.5 points and the final score in the low 70s.

They come across the mountains high
From the Utah land so dry
The heights they will attempt to fly
and beat the Jayhawks?!? They will try! They’re
Thunderbirds!
Thunderbirds!
Thunderbirds!
Thunderbirds!

But Friday night they’re Underdogs
Friday night they’re in The Phog
For yet another KANSAS JAYHAWK…

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

Yes, indeed KANSAS fans, the Thunderbirds of WAC member Southern Utah University are in The Phog this Friday night for Norm Roberts' final appearance as Acting Head Coach. It's totally unofficial according to the U, but the lads will attempt to give Norm an undefeated 4-0 record as game coach for our beloved defending National Champion KANSAS JAYHAWKS Men's Basketball team!

The ESPN pregame matchup predictor says KU wins 90.9%% of the time, with KANSAS favored in the game by 21.5 points.

They're the Wolfpack, and they can play
They can defend and love the three,
In Paradise they're out to win
Come away with victory.

Our Jayhawks are there, strong and prepared
To make history this day
In Paradise there'll be a fray
On the season's first ...

... Buh duh DUH duh DUH DUH duh duh duh duh DUH DUH DUH ... BALL DAY!!
(Today's rhyme owes thanks to Duran Duran, those hungry like the wolf guys)

Yes, KANSAS fans, our Jayhawks are looking forward to three days of basketball battle in Paradise, starting Wednesday morning at 1100 as they face the Wolfpack of North Carolina State. This game also marks the returns to the bench of HC Bill Self and AC Kurtis Townsend, just in time to play in one of the best early season tournaments going. Our lads will attempt to give Self his first official victory of the season as head coach for our beloved defending National Champion KANSAS JAYHAWKS Men's Basketball team!

The ESPN pregame matchup predictor says KU wins 62.4% of the time, with KANSAS favored in the game by 8.5 points.
