So it's an exhibition. But it is basketball and the last couple of weeks haven't been kind to us between the stomping by Georgia Tech and the constant reminder that football drives conference realignment. So tonight, we celebrate Kansas basketball and there's absolutely no reason we shouldn't. Should be a fun one, I hear those in Kansas will be able to catch this one on TV so feel free to have a little conversation although I imagine an alumni exhibition won't have quite the same affect of the real thing.
