Kansas’ win over Pittsburg State…
-Marks the Jayhawks’ 24th straight exhibition win.
-Marks KU’s 24th straight home exhibition victory.
-Makes KU 42-7 all-time in exhibition play.
-Improves Kansas’ exhibition record under Bill Self to 10-0.
-Marks Kansas’ sixth straight win over Pittsburg State, making the Jayhawks 6-0 all-time versus the Gorillas in both regular season and exhibition play.
-Improves KU’s exhibition record at Allen Fieldhouse to 38-4 all-time.
-Marks the 10th straight season that KU has gone unblemished in the preseason.
-The game would have marked the first career start for freshman Brandon Rush.
-The contest would have been the first action of the season for sophomore Darnell Jackson.
-Jackson’s seven rebounds would have been a career high, and his eight points would have tied a career-best.
-Sophomore C.J. Giles’ 24 points, 10 field goal attempts, eight free throws made and 10 free throw attempts would have marked career highs.
-Senior Jeff Hawkins’ six assists and seven rebounds would have been career highs.
-The game would have been the first time since Feb. 26, 2003 against Texas A&M that a Kansas opponent failed to produce a double-digit scorer.
-Pittsburg State’s 47 points were the fewest given up by the Jayhawks since Langara College netted 46 on Sept. 5, 2004 during Kansas’ Canadian exhibition tour.
-Kansas’ 73 points are the fewest points scored by a KU team in any recorded regulation-length exhibition game. The previous low was when the 1983 squad tallied 74 against The Netherlands.
-Eight of Kansas’ last nine exhibition wins have come by 20 points or more.
-This would have marked only the third time in Coach Self’s tenure at KU that only one Jayhawk player scored in double figures.
