Rock chalk

There are nearly 20 college basketball games on TV today, so unless you are a fan, you may have missed the spanking Kansas applied to Kentucky at noon. These are two of the winningest schools (third and first, respectively) in NCAA hoops history; yet, the final score was as lopsided as the 1989 game (which was the last time Kentucky visited Lawrence).

This time, however, each team scored only about half as many points as that last meeting in Allen Fieldhouse:

This year: 73-46 (KU over UK by a factor of 1.59)
1989 game: 150-95 (KU over UK by a factor of 1.58)

After a bad start for the very young team, Kansas has now won half a dozen in a row.

Rock chalk, Jayhawk, KU!
Repeat 4 times.
