Kansas (27-4, 15-3) currently resides at #1 in the AP Poll. The Jayhawks are coming off a come-from-behind 85-78 home win over Iowa State on Senior Day in Lawrence.

Kansas State (17-15, 5-13) comes in unranked. The Wildcats knocked off Oklahoma State in the first round of the conference tournament yesterday by a 75-71 score.

It's officially postseason time. K-State needs to win three more games if they want to play in the tournament that matters, and probably at least one or two more if they want NIT consideration. Not only does Kansas not want to fall to their in-state rival, a win would all but lock up the #1 overall seed for the NCAA Tournament.

Bill Self is 26-5 all-time against KSU, including 25-5 while at KU.

Kansas won both regular season meetings: 77-59 in Lawrence and 72-63 in Manhattan.

Kansas is 28-6 all-time in the Sprint Center (does not include World University Games).
