KUBB Factoids

As we gear up for the big game in Austin this weekend, I thought I would share some KUBB facts.

  1. 0 – 30: the Big XII South’s record in Allen. As mentioned on the KUSports.com’s podcast – since inception, no Big XII South team has won in Allen Fieldhouse. This includes rivals from the former Big 8 OU and Okie St.
  1. Defensive Superiority – Could this year’s KU team be one of the best defenses in the country? And I am not referring to the 2005-2006 season, but over the last three seasons. From our friends over at PhogBlog here is how KU current defensive percentage ranks amoung the best of season’s past:
TEAM YEAR RATING
Kansas 2006 79.8
Louisville 2004 81.9
Pittsburgh 2004 81.9
Washington St. 2005 82.5
Duke 2005 82.9
Connecticut 2004 83.0
Duke 2004 83.5
Iowa 2006 83.7
Georgia Tech 2004 83.7
Villanova 2005 83.8

Notice the gap between the 2006 Jayhawks to date and RObert’s NIT bound Cards relative to the rest of the field.

  1. ESPN showing the Wheel some love. All KU alums have fond memories of Lawrence’s version of the classic college town bar – the Wheel. Every true college town has a bar that has been a staple for generations of students and alums. Catch this recap of last night’s game against Baylor for the reference.

Rock Chalk…..
