๐Ÿ—“ This Day In Kansas Basketball History

Kansas is 18-5 all-time on March 4; 2-1 under head coach Bill Self
March 7th, 1952: Lawrence played host to a top-10 edition of the Sunflower Showdown, a game which featured the No. 8-ranked ranked Jayhawks and the No. 3-ranked Kansas State Wildcats, KU taking the 78-61 inside Hoch Auditorium. Kansas relied on their superstar big man senior Clyde Lovellette, who dropped 33 points to propel the Jayhawks to the blowout win over their in-state rival. On the back of the All-American Lovellette, the Jayhawks would go on to win the NCAA Tournament, the programโ€™s first and the 1952 squad will go down as one of the most successful teams in KU history.
