    How many times have we defeated the eventual national champion?

    If KU wins on Monday, will it be just the 2nd time that we've beaten that year's national champion? The only other time I'm aware of is beating KU when they won in '88. I'm don't recall any other times from memory, and I'm too lazy to look through each season's results, so I'm hoping some of the old-timers or guys with encyclopedic knowledge might be able to help me.

    Would be surprised if ku beats uk, but it would be a pretty cool footnote for sure!

    On the slightly less bright side we lost to both teams playing in the championship game. Booyah.

    However, of the teams who have played both championship game teams this season, Iowa State is the only one with a win.

    Yep, they lost to them in the tourney.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
