Game blog from Sprint Center: No. 3 Kansas vs. Davidson

In a Sprint Center rematch of sorts, the Kansas basketball team faces Davidson Saturday night, in Kansas City, Mo., in the same venue where the two programs last squared off in December of 2011. Coach Bob McKillop’s Wildcats prevailed, 80-74, against a Bill Self-coached KU team that went on to advance as far as the national championship game. At 5-3, Davidson will try and repeat that feat against the No. 3-ranked Jayhawks (9-1).
