Has KU's basketball team ever played Marquette before, specifically in the NCAA Tournament?
Actually, yes. The Jayhawks, who meet Marquette in the national basketball semifinals Saturday in New Orleans, met Marquette in the national semifinals on March 23, 1974, in Greensboro, N.C. Marquette won that game, 64-51. It's the only time KU has lost to Marquette. The Jayhawks have beaten the Golden Eagles, formerly called the Warriors, five times, the last meeting an 85-61 KU win Jan. 28, 1992, in Milwaukee.
