Kansas returns home for a Big Monday matchup with the Cyclones of Iowa.

Iowa enters the contest at 14-4. The Cyclones are coming off a 72-59 victory over Oklahoma State in Ames.
This is the first rematch of the conference season for both squads. 17 days ago, the Cyclones smoked the Jayhawks by a 77-60 final. Quentin Grimes led KU in scoring with 19 points vs Iowa, per this ESPN graphic:
Kansas leads the all-time series with Iowa 181-65. That includes a 93-16 mark in Lawrence, and a 52-10 record in Allen Fieldhouse. However, the Jayhawks and Cyclones are 4-4 vs each other in the eight most recent matchups regardless of location.
Iowa State has not swept KU in the regular season since the 2000-01 campaign.
It’s about gametime, so...
