Monday night was one of those games that Kansas coach Bill Self likes to refer to as “big-boy games.” And thanks to some of the biggest boys on the Kansas roster, the Jayhawks came away victorious, 76-72 over Iowa State at Hilton Coliseum. By Matt Tait
Monday night, in a match-up pitting the Big 12 preseason player of the year against arguably the best player in all of college basketball so far this season, Kansas senior Frank Mason III helped his team out-duel Iowa State’s Monte Morris at Hilton Coliseum in a 76-72. By Matt Tait
No one on the Kansas basketball team expected it to be easy to stay unbeaten in Big 12 play — not with the Jayhawks playing a solid Iowa State team in front of a malicious Hilton Coliseum crowd Monday night.
The No. 2-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, riding a 16-game winning streak, make their 2017 ESPN Big Monday debut in a hostile environment, at Hilton Coliseum, home of the Iowa State Cyclones. KU (16-1 overall, 5-0 Big 12) is playing just its fourth road game of the season, against ISU (11-5, 3-2), which is 5-0 at home the last two seasons when coming off a conference road loss. Iowa State lost, 84-77, at TCU Saturday.
