It's Senior Night at Allen Fieldhouse on Wednesday night when the Kansas Jayhawks host the Texas A&M Aggies. KU basketball has had a terrific year and there are going to be some teary eyes in Lawrence saying goodbye to these seniors.
KU basketball head coach Bill Self spoke with the media this week and described his thoughts on Senior Night, the final home game of the year.
"To me Senior Night is a celebration of three guy's careers. One game does not capture what their careers have been. At Kansas that's one of the great things we have here and one of the great things we do tradition-wise. There will be a time when Senior Night does not go as scripted. I certainly hope and wish it's not immediately. That will happen and you have to adjust, I have to adjust in life no matter what. We're not going to look at it negatively, we're going to look at it as, `Senior Night is going to give us an extra boost,' rather than let it take away from anything."
I'd be weary if I were Texas A&M. KU is already one of the best teams in the country so they don't need "an extra boost" to take care of the Aggies. They may need "an extra boost" to blow them out, though. We'll see how it goes when the two teams tip-off on Wednesday night.
