ITP: Kansas takes down No. 1 Duke

Are you relaxed yet? The Jayhawks just took down the #1 team in college basketball.

Note: Sorry for the annoying popping noise from about the 16-minute mark to the 24-minute mark or so. Technical difficulties are a pain and we’re going to upgrade that this weekend. Otherwise, enjoy the show!

The Kansas Jayhawks beat Duke on Tuesday night to even their record at 1-1, but it was a monumental victory for a team desperate to score a victory. Things should settle down a bit for Kansas in the upcoming future, but we re-live the victory by going through Frank Mason’s heroic game, Josh Jackson’s up-and-down night, and the emerging freshman that keyed the win. We also debate on who Kansas’ starting center should and will be in the upcoming future.

The Big 12 is off to a 21-1 start on the season. We go through upsets from around the country in what was a great first week of college basketball action, and we go through your #AskRCB questions. We also do Jayhawks in the NBA and talk about Billy Preston, a five-star power forward set to make his recruiting decision on Friday.

After consecutive games against elite opponents, the Jayhawks’ schedule will soften in the coming weeks. That starts tonight when Kansas hosts Sienna in its 2016-17 home opener. We break down the game and offer predictions for the weekend ahead in basketball.
