Scoreboard operator Robbie Vannaman, far left, keeps watch of the game as Kansas players Kevin Young and Jeff Withey look to check in during the first half of the Jayhawks' game against American University on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012, at Allen Fieldhouse.
At the last second, Kansas University red-shirt freshman Ben McLemore banked in a three. The usual 16,300 paying customers screamed. Allen Fieldhouse shook.
