Kansas Got Away With An Egregious Travel To Beat Kansas State At The Buzzer And The Refs Must’ve Had Money On The Game
Kansas Head Coach Bill Self has only lost a total of nine times at Allen Fieldhouse. Kansas State nearly handed Self his tenth loss after rallying from 12-point second half deficit against the No. 3 Jayhawks, no small feat for a team that was a 13.5-point underdog prior to the game.
All knotted up at 88, the game was primed to go into overtime. That was before KU junior Svi Mykhailiuk hit the game winning layup after taking a total of 39 steps.
Commentator Fran Fraschilla said after the game: “Even in Europe that’s a travel,” which is saying something considering the European players typically tap dance after picking up their dribble. It should be noted that the dude who hit the game winner is from Ukraine, and I’m not sure they have rules there. For anything.
This graphic tells the whole story.
Kansas improves to 13-1 on the year and have won a mind-blowing 47 straight at home. K-State dropped to 12-2.
Some visionary coupled the footage with the Titanic theme song.
Westbrook be like, “Looked good to me.”
