Kansas and College Basketball

When the NCAA tournament became Madness - The Bonus - SI.com
In '88 I was sitting in a Lamaze class in advance of the birth of our first child, nervously wondering if Kansas' and Danny Manning's win over Oklahoma was actually getting recorded on my newfangled VCR. That's just three.

Syracuse Orange coach Jim Boeheim -- Fab Melo 'didn't let anybody down' - ESPN

Only one No. 2 seed on the five potential first round upsets. Guess who? I hate this label. I mean I was at the gym this morning and this guy who professes to know nothing about basketball talks about doing his bracket and all he can say is that he "picked Kansas last year but they didn't do so good". Kansas did better than all BUT EIGHT TEAMS in the country. How is that so bad? Rant over.

He really struggled late in '97. Of course he was struggling as a three point shooter, Henson isn't doing much of that.
