As Kansas closes out the college basketball season’s opening month, only one other team in the country is considered in better standing.
Just about everything visual about Tuesday's Champions Classic clash between No. 4 Kansas and No. 7 Kentucky at United Center showed that the Wildcats had won. That is, unless you were looking at the scoreboard. While John Calipari's latest crop of young Kentucky Wildcats made the bigger, brighter and louder plays throughout the game's first 30 minutes, it was the Kansas experience that closed and led the Jayhawks to a 65-61 victory.
