For the second game in a row, the Kansas men’s basketball team had to survive a scare in Allen Fieldhouse. Despite a late-game blunder, No. 5 Kansas held on for a 73-72 win over No. 8 Creighton Tuesday night in Allen Fieldhouse.
The fifth-ranked Kansas men’s basketball team’s 73-72 victory over No. 8 Creighton on Tuesday at Allen Fieldhouse was still very much basketball in the time of a pandemic. But this version looked a lot more like what we’ve seen in the past, with living, breathing fans occupying roughly 2,500 seats inside the historic venue.
In the final minute of a tied game against No. 8 Creighton, the No. 5 Jayhawks needed a basket when the ball once again found its way into the hands of the man who had carried them all night.
