Top-Ranked Jayhawks Head to West Virginia Tuesday in Men’s Hoops

It's a battle of the league play unbeaten teams as No. 1/2 Kansas (14-1, 3-0) heads to No. 17/15 West Virginia (14-1, 3-0) Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 6 p.m. (Central) on ESPN2 at WVU Coliseum.

“(Kansas) is No. 1. But what does that mean? What if we were put in the Top 10 when we first started? Where would we be? There’s nothing we can do about that number they got,” said Devin Williams.

“We had to put ourselves in the Top 25,” Williams added. “At the end of the day, we should feel disrespected, because we’re just as good as anybody in the country — starting five to bench. We can play with anybody in the country.”

Give KU credit for taking the Red Raiders seriously. I'm sure having five days to rest and prep for Tech did not hurt, but, still, it would've been very easy for Kansas to overlook this game in anticipation of what has become a pretty big game on Tuesday night in Morgantown, West Virginia, where the Big 12's only two unbeatens will square off at 7 p.m. The concept of a trap game has become pretty cliché. But they do exist. This definitely was one.

Vikings' Blair Walsh shanks 27-yard FG to give Seahawks the win -

With 26 seconds left in the game and the Vikings trailing 10-9, Walsh lined up for a 27-yard field goal attempt that was going to all but win the game for Minnesota. Walsh had already hit from 47, 43 and 22 yards in the game, so the 27-yard kick seemed like a lock.
