Night and day: Texas Tech tough at home |

“Winning in Lubbock will be a bear, like last year. We lucked into a one-point win there and won by 26 or 30 here (Allen Fieldhouse),” KU coach Bill Self said, reflecting on last year’s 25-point victory in Lawrence and narrow 64-63 decision in the Red Raiders’ 15,098-seat building.

Poll Attacks: Dropping Iowa State for losing at Kansas is stupid -

In other words, Scott dropped Iowa State 11 spots for losing at Allen Fieldhouse -- a place literally no visiting team has won in more than a year. Seems harsh, right? And by harsh, I mean silly and impossible to defend -- especially when considering Scott dropped Arizona just three spots (from sixth to ninth) for losing at Arizona State, which suggests, on some level, that Scott thinks losing at Kansas is three times worse than losing at Arizona State.

Stormtroopers join Mavericks huddle before horrible Star Wars Night loss -

Yep, all of that is a totally, totally normal promotion for a professional basketball game. Sure. Unfortunately for the Mavs, none of it brought them any luck on the court. Tyson Chandler (ankle) and Monta Ellis (hip) both had to leave the game in the first few minutes, and the Blake Griffin-less Clippers steamrolled them 115-98.
