Davidson is coached by Bob McKillop, who is 521-316 in 28 seasons as a head coach, all at Davidson.

These two teams have only played twice in their histories, splitting the two meetings. Kansas survived Steph Curry and Davidson's upset bid in the 2008 NCAA Tournament (that eventually led to KU's most recent national title). However, three years later, in December 2011, Davidson came to Kansas City for this very event and knocked off the Jayhawks.

So maybe seeing Davidson on the schedule is a good thing - after all, KU has made national championship game appearances following meetings with these particular Wildcats!

Kansas is 33-6 all-time at Sprint Center.

Kansas is 218-80 all-time in Kansas City.

Kansas has won 48 straight "home" games - the game technically counts as a home game.
