Kansas lost to K-State ... and it’s time to talk about the streak

The court was left a mess of confetti and streamers, the moment captured with a thousand selfies after Kansas State’s first win over Kansas in nearly four years.

K-State doesn’t win this rivalry game often, but here’s something even rarer — KSU winning as a favorite, and as the Big 12 frontrunner, the reaction from many being: Why storm the court after beating THIS KU team?

Strange days, and K-State’s 74-67 win — forever memorialized with Cartier Diarra’s amazing windmill dunk — has created the strangest of Big 12 basketball realities.

K-State is now alone in first place at 7-2; Kansas is two games back and tied for — pauses to doublecheck, because this doesn’t sound right — fourth place.
