NCAA Tournament Preview: Kansas Going for 7-0 Mark in Sprint Center
- The first step off the bus was familiar. So was going through security, navigating the maze of tunnels, walking into the locker room and getting cozy in one of the wooden stalls.
Yes, everything about the Sprint Center is familiar to top-seeded Kansas.
After all, the Jayhawks are 6-0 in the building this season.
“It’s kind of weird,” admitted freshman star Ben McLemore, “but you know, we’ve worked hard to come back here, and now we just have to go out there and perform.”
The Jayhawks (29-5) earned the top seed in the South Region and the right to play a 30-minute drive from their Lawrence campus by winning the regular-season Big 12 title, and running roughshod through the conference tournament last weekend at Kansas City’s downtown arena.
