There will be plenty to digest at Allen Fieldhouse Wednesday night, with the No. 3 Jayhawks trying to earn at least a share of the Kansas basketball program’s 13th consecutive Big 12 regular-season title, and former KU great and national champion Brandon Rush having his jersey retired at halftime. The Jayhawks (24-3 overall, 12-2 Big 12) hope it’s a night full of celebrations as they welcome TCU (17-10, 6-8) to Lawrence.
About 25 minutes until tip off tonight. Should be a festive night (assuming KU wins). Who's the player to watch during the game? I'll go with Devonte Graham, who didn't shoot the ball well against Baylor.
TCU starters: Jaylen Fisher, Alex Robinson, Kenrich Williams, JD Miller and Vlad Brodziansky.
Last minute on pre-game clock. Then anthem and starters.
Lots of Brandon Rush in pre-game hype video. And some Baylor highlights from last weekend.
