On April 9, 1899, a recent headline had read "KANSAS UNIVERSITY WINS -- The Third Basket Ball Game Won From the Topeka YMCA Team" in the Lawrence Journal. The newspaper noted: "Only a small crowd attended the game. There was plenty of enthusiasm, however, and Topeka showed up in good form, giving the University boys a harder fight for the victory than in any of the preceding games." KU had played and won over this Topeka team on Feb. 10, March 3 and April 7 in its inaugural basketball season of 1898-1899.
