Oddly enough, they did not first meet on the basketball court until the preseason...

Jayhawks open season with underwhelming victory

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) For one quarter, Kansas looked like everything its fans hoped it would be when Charlie Weis was hired two years ago, racing to a 24-point lead against Southeast Missouri State.
