It took 3 extra periods, and 3 extra large coffees for Dickie V. At the end it was the Jayhawks with the big W in a game that matched the top two teams in the country.

Oklahoma was down early, but bounced back with some good shooting and behind the the greatness of Buddy Hield. Hield did everything he could to get the road win including dropping 46 points. In the end, Hield, a real consideration for College Player of the Year, couldn’t hit the big shot and had two costly turnovers down the stretch of the final OT.

Kansas proved they are the true #1 right now, but they do have to go play the Sooners on the road February 13th.

Kansas was led by Perry Ellis who had 27 points and 13 rebounds, and Wayne Selden who added 21 points.

It was a Final Four preview, and it lived up to the hype.

Jordan Woodard hit six 3-pointers and had 27 points for the Sooners, who were trying to extend their best start in 28 yards. Ryan Spangler finished with 14 points and 18 rebounds.
