It’s just an Allen Fieldhouse thing. At least, that’s what West Virginia must be thinking in the wake of another miraculous Kansas/West VA comeback in Lawrence. The Jayhawks’ win propelled them into first place after Texas Tech lost later in the day, which should come as no surprise to Kansas fans, even though it will. Arguably the biggest win of the season gets broken down in its entirety, with all of the angles and takeaways we can come up with being presented in a 40-minute recap.

The back end of KU’s consecutive home game window continues tonight when Trae Young and the ice-cold Oklahoma Sooners come to town, but with both teams ready to break out of their shooting slumps, we could be in for a battle for the ages between the two juggernauts. We preview the game and talk about what Kansas needs to do to keep up its hot winning efforts.
