1988 NCAA Championship Kansas vs. Oklahoma
On April 4th, 1988, Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri played host to the NCAA national championship game between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Oklahoma Sooners. The Jayhawks, led by Coach Larry Brown, were the mid-west regionís number six seed where as the Sooners, making their second title game appearance in school history, came in as the first seed in the south region. Perhaps considered an underdog coming in, Kansas used a near home court advantage to defeat Oklahoma 83-79 to claim their 2nd NCAA title in school history. With just a short commute from Lawrence to Kansas City, the Jayhawk faithful showed up in full force to cheer their Jayhawks on to a national championship victory! Highlighted by what is considered one of the greatest NCAA tournament performances of all time, Kansasís Danny Manning scored a tournament leading 163 points in guiding the Jayhawks to a national title, and was named the tournamentís Most Outstanding Player. Bonus Disc: A historic match up between bitter rivals Kansas and Duke, this battle was fought to the very end as Kansas left it all on the floor and advanced to the NCAA Championship game in exciting fashion!
