Sorry, I will have to postpone my summary of the Iowa State game at least a day or two. I have to write an essay on Beowulf and the heroic standards of his time today for my English class (fun stuff huh?) so I am pressing my luck doing a quick game preview.
Here is KU Sports' game preivew with some interesting notes on the game. One interesting note from it, we have won the last 7 meetings in Allen Fieldhouse between us and the Jayhawks.
Here is Missouri's game preview with some really intersting notes.
Here is the Worldwide Leader's preview. The game will be shown on ESPN on "Big Monday" and is also a part of "Student Spirit Week" on the ESPN family of networks, showcasing the best Student Spirit from across the country.If you are interested, ESPN's experts rank their Top 5 venues in college basketball here. By the way, of the 6 experts ranking all NCAA schools (Kyle Whelliston stuck to mid-majors) 5 of them chose Allen Fieldhouse as one of their Top 5, with Pat Forde being the odd man out.
Here is what they had to say...
This is your open thread for tonight's game, I will be watching the game and cheering on our Jayhawks but won't be able to come to the Open Thread because of the aforementioned paper I have to write.
One more interesting nugget, we have won 8 in a row since losing @ DePaul but the Tigers have lost 3 in a row. Those streaks combined with the fact that it is in Allen Fieldhouse, a place where the Tigers have always struggled (an all time record of 16-34 for them shows it) and I smell a romp coming on.
Prediction: Kansas 85 Missouri 68
