Will be a rematch from the national semifinal game (as well as reg season game at Kansas):

THis win will not take the sting off losing to them twice last year almost exactly like the year OSU beat Florida after FLorida defeated OSU for the national title.
We certainly owe them for 2 losses last year...this time we get them at home so hpefully that will be the difference....great to see Duke & Florida last year, Kansas this year on our non-conf home schedule.
Hopefully the third time's the charm! I'm still not convinced they were the better team last season but to their credit they prevailed and we didn't. I REALLY wanted to give Kentucky some go on Monday but I digress...
Here is a good KU synopsis heading into 2012-13 from the scout board.
Lose: Thomas Robinson & Tyshawn Taylor - Pretty much the whole team for the majority of last season.
Retain (4 seniors): C: Jeff Withey - Set NCAA record for blocks in tourney, PG: Elijah Johnson - Made huge plays in almost every tournament game for us, SF: Travis Releford - 5 year player, excellent defender, PF: Kevin Young - You guys might remember him from the game in Allen last year.
1 (soph) - Naadir Tharpe - Top 100 back up PG fighting for minutes to back up Johnson.
8 (frosh) - YES 8 FRESHMEN!!!!!!
PF: Perry Ellis - 6'8 - Only McD's All-American on the team
SG: Ben McLemore - Top 35 guy, will be a starter and depended on for scoring
SF: Andrew White - Top 50 guy, 3 point shooter
PG/SG: Anrio Adams - Top 100 west coast guy
PF: Jamari Traylor, PF: Zach Peters, PG: Milton Doyle, C: Landen Lucas - All 3 star guys that we are hoping to find 1-2 players from eventually.
Schedule next year rocks.
