The current Kansas Jayhawks basketball team may not know much about the Richmond Spiders but KU basketball fans may remember a January 22, 2004 game at Allen Fieldhouse. Richmond's Tony Dobbins drilled a jumper with a second left to beat Kansas, who was ranked No. 12 in the AP poll at the time.
With Kansas (11-3) clinging to a 68-67 lead and the shot clock running out, Aaron Miles tried a 3-point shot that Dobbins knocked away. Miles got the ball back, but there wasn't time to shoot again and Richmond got the ball back on a shot clock violation.Dobbins dribbled into the lane on the ensuing possession, spun and swished the game-winner. Kansas had time for one inbounds pass, but the Jayhawks' Wayne Simien was called for a pushing foul and Richmond was able to run out the clock.
That shot snapped KU's then 52-game home winning streak against unranked opponents, which started in 1999. That loss put them at three on the season -- more games than KU has lost all of this season combined.
So KU fans should remember Richmond. Kansas is a heavy favorite against Richmond this time around so I'm guessing things will be different.
