When two top-10 teams square off in prime time, the rest of the college basketball universe makes a point to tune in and watch the show.

ESPN’s Big Monday matchup between No. 10 Kansas and No. 6 West Virginia wasn’t always the most visually appealing display, but the Jayhawks’ unlikely rally for a rare “Country Road” win made it a captivating finish.

For the more prominent viewers — some former KU players, others national college basketball writers and analysts — the battle between two of the Big 12’s top teams and the Jayhawks’ first win at WVU Coliseum in five years not only proved entertaining but also telling.

Here are some of the social media reactions to KU’s 71-66 win, from around college basketball, including a couple from Jayhawks who made it possible.

I can't stop smiling today. I keep worrying that people are going to start wondering if I'm losing it.

Was Seth taking a shot at Fran with that comment "...someone will blame the reffing at Allen Fieldhouse.."? I feel like he was. I HOPE he was, anyway.
