John -- Kansas's Comments

Posted Monday June 17, 2013, About: America's team?
Kentucky is only good because a man from Halstead, Kansas, attended the University of Kansas and played basketball for Forrest (Phog) Allen, then became an assistant to and learned to coach basketball under Phog Allen, and finally became the head coach at Kentucky. This Kansan had such a profound affect on Kentucky basketball they named their basketball arena after him -- Rupp Arena.

The same is true of Dean Smith and UNC basketball.
