Allen Fieldhouse is one of the most exciting places to watch a college basketball game. National broadcasters including ESPN’s Andy Katz and Jay Bilas have both noted Allen Fieldhouse as one of the best places to watch a college basketball game. The combination of the excitement of the fans coupled with the history and tradition of Allen Fieldhouse makes this a can’t miss place to visit for any college basketball fan. Maybe this is part of why the Kansas Jayhawks have the longest active home winning streak in all of NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball.
Following the win over Iowa State on Saturday, the Jayhawks now have a win streak of 56 games at Allen Fieldhouse. 56 games. That’s a very long time. The Jayhawks have not lost at home since the infamous Hack-a-Kaun game against Texas A&M in 2007. Now that Missouri recently lost at home to Oklahoma State, Siena is the team that has the 2nd most home wins currently at 34. So with Kansas obviously having an impressive streak, this led me to wonder how many more games must the Kansas Jayhawks win at home in order to hold the record of all time. Well it looks like they would have to have another few years of a perfect home streak. Kentucky holds the record of all-time at 129 games (1943-1955). Now that’s an impressive record. Along with Big 12 foes Colorado and Oklahoma, the Kansas State Wildcats are looking to end the Jayhawks home streak. Let’s hope the Jayhawks can finish the year at Allen Fieldhouse strong and send the all three remaining Big 12 opponents home with a loss.
The amazing home court streak at Allen Fieldhouse cannot just be attributed to the rabid Kansas fans and the mystique of “Beware of the Phog”. Bill Self’s stellar recruiting and the solid play of the team these past few years deserves most of the credit.
