In pursuit of No. 2000

From 801 to 1500


Kansas remained a national power for much of the late 20th century, as coaches such as Larry Brown and Ted Owens posted stellar won-loss records. The team hit the 1,500-victory mark in a 1993 victory led by guard Rex Walters.

1500: Jordan, Walters like rims

Freedom Hall’s rims are safe. Rex Walters and Adonis Jordan didn’t stick them in their suitcases…as much as they would have liked to. “We really like the rims here,” Walters said after he and his Kansas backcourt teammate put on a long-range shooting clinic in the Jayhawks’ 98-77 victory over Louisville on Saturday night.

The losing streak — Kansas’ eight-game, month-long basketball bummer — is history.

Kansas University basketball teammates Calvin Thompson (#35) and Danny Manning (#25) congratulate each other in this 1985 file photo. Thompson and Manning were part of a 1985-1986 squad that earned the program's 1,300th victory by defeating SIU-Edwardsville in December.

CATS? how many championships you have? And i am not talking in the sport of cattle tipping.

Besides the 86' and 94' cowtipping championships, KSU also has the three year run as the top NCAA mountain oyster-eating club.

take away Kentucky point shaving , probation, and even current cheating... Kansas in front by 1000. unbelievable Kentucky was found guilty of point shaving and paying players several times .. but wins stand in books... Calipari gets caught twice and leaves schools like Memphis that have to vacate wins? what about the team that should have been in final four if they had not cheated? why do they allow wins to stand on HUGE , Major violations... point shaving? paying tens of thousands? teams today would get the death penality.. they got records still on the books.... NCAA, spend one day in Kentucky , the slime will never wash off...
