NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

KU finally returns to Allen Fieldhouse as the Jayhawks prepare to host the Horned Frogs of TCU.

Kansas enters the contest with a ranking of #15 by the AP, while TCU comes in unranked. KenPom has the Jayhawks at #16 and the Frogs at #93 - the highest rated of the three Big 12 teams outside the top-35 in KP. (Yes, that means the Big 12 has 7 teams in KP’s top-35.)

Kansas leads the overall series against TCU by a 21-2 count. The Frogs are winless in Lawrence with an 0-9 record. The most recent meeting between the two programs was a 93-64 KU win in Fort Worth just three weeks ago.

The Jayhawks are coming off a 75-68 road loss at Oklahoma, while the Frogs also come in off a road loss at Oklahoma, theirs an 82-46 disastrous affair.

Here are the essentials:
