Eleven Straight…..Yesterday, I posted about the Kansas Jayhawk game being played last evening.
Well, we won! And what a game it was.
It was one of those come from behind Overtime thrillers and will remain in my memory a long, long time.
Last night, my Kansas Jayhawks beat the West Virginia Mountaineers which clinched the eleventh straight Big 12 Championship for KU.
We went into over time after trailing by 18 and the game was electric.
Congratulations to Coach Bill Self for doing what no other College Basketball coach has done….KU won the Big 12 Conference Championship, outright…for the eleventh straight year.
The Tourney’s are just beginning now…The Jayhawks have to play in the Big 12 Tournament and then the NCAA Tournament so we cannot rest on our laurels….but for today, we can bask in the glory of these great college kids who pulled together to pull out a win that was very important to the Kansas Basketball program.
Congratulations Jayhawks and Coach Bill Self.
Rock Chalk Jayhawk…KU!
By the way…tradition has it that at the beginning of each home game…the Alma Mater is sung and then the Chant begins.
This is the same chant that many teams hate to hear …because about 2 minutes before a game ends….KU fans “sing” this haunting chant, whether at home games or far away games….and the opposing team knows the Jayhawks are winning this particular battle.
If you don’t mind a little team spirit and you have not heard this chant….click on the featured video in the upper right corner of my home page and listen for yourself. 😉
I particularly love this chant and many sports analysts like it too and always comment “here comes the chant”. (I believe we are the only college school who does this)
Rock Chalk Jayhawk….KU!!
