ESPN: College hoops could use more games like Kansas-Kentucky.


Last night we watched an instant classic. From an objective POV, the Kansas/Kentucky game was one of the best games played all season. ESPN’s C.L. Brown thinks so too. In his latest article Brown says that last night’s match-up between the two blood bloods was on a championship level: 

Kansas’ 90-84 overtime win over Kentucky was a championship-level game — it even brought out James Naismith in the form of little kid dressed up in his likeness — and we’re still more than a month away from the NCAA tournament.

Brown also reiterates something Matt said on twitter last night; having a game of this caliber the weekend before the Superbowl is exactly what college basketball needs:

This open weekend before the Super Bowl would be the perfect time every year for college basketball to claim the spotlight of the sporting world.

While the coaches probably don’t like having a game like this in the middle of conference play, it seems like doing this regularly would be very good for the college basketball world as a whole.

    What kind of game would that be, the visiting team getting hosed by the officials kind of game?

    I do hate that the boys came up short, but as a fan of the game it was compelling viewing. A great regular season non con during conference play and the open NFL weekend. What’s not to love? That was a crazy environment and I definitely have complete respect for that field house. No one wins at KU. Go Cats!
