I actually get this question more than most being from a smaller community where you pretty much farm or work in the oil patch, a place that’s filled with KSU fans. As noted we didn’t have a ton growing up, we played outside most the time not having cable but the winters were long and back in them days you could watch a good chunk of KU games with bunny ears. I started watching in the mid 90s and have been a KU fan ever since. The first team I remember watching I believe to be the 96-97 team with Pierce, Vaugh, Raef and co. A ton of guys I went to school with back then loved KU basketball and switched to KSU later on but don’t admit it. I just grew up watching and never changed, I wouldn’t change just because KSU has an AG program. Seems kinda silly to me.
I thought KU played quite well even in the first half. They beat the press much better than previous years. Their D was really solid. They took away WV strength, offensive rebounding, and made them into a jump shooting team.
I thought Self had an excellent game plan and execution by players was good. The few TOs in the early stages can be expected, more mental lapses.
