KU Struggles Away From Allen Fieldhouse

The Kansas Jayhawks have lost only four games all season. All four games have occurred away from Allen Fieldhouse. Now two of those losses came to the hands of current #1 Kentucky and #5 Duke, both games happened in Hawaii during the Maui Invitational. Both of those losses is not going to hurt anyone at the end of the year, especially since both Kentucky and Duke could end up with #1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament. KU also lost to Davidson on a neutral court in Kansas City, so you can be the judge of how neutral the crowd was. Even with a home crowd feel at the Sprint Center, it wasn’t enough to power the Jayhawks past the Wildcats. The other loss was at Iowa State, an in conference opponent on the road.

If you’re a KU fan you obviously don’t have much to complain about. Considering this is suppose to be a down year for Kansas Basketball and they are currently ranked #8 in the country and have sole possession of first place in the Big 12 conference. Not having things to complain about is different, however, than having things to worry about. KU is leading the Big 12 currently, but for how long. When Kansas plays at Allen Fieldhouse they seem to be unbeatable, but when they leave Lawrence they become a different team. They lost at Iowa State and barely held on to a victory down at Texas, which is one of the bottom teams this year in the Big 12. KU’s road skills will be tested in the next couple weeks as they go to #4 Missouri and #6 Baylor in back to back games. Then they have to go to in state rival K-State where they have struggled in recent years. Bill Self has a big task ahead for the Kansas Jayhawks and we will know in a couple weeks if KU is for real or if they have just been riding the glory of Allen Fieldhouse.
