Gold became a trending topic in the realm of college basketball social media Monday morning, as news spread of Kansas leading Team USA to a double-overtime victory over Germany in the World University Games final.
From SportsCenter, to Larry Brown to Dick Vitale, various tweets popped up congratulating the Jayhawks on their summer run.
Even cooler, though, was the opportunity this international stage gave KU’s players. And after going 8-0 in South Korea, the Jayhawks couldn’t help celebrating their feat.
A few former Kansas players acknowledged the win, too.
Even those tied to the KU football program showed some love for the basketball team’s golden moment.
