Kansas had more fans at Allen Fieldhouse at 1 a.m. Monday than some big-time basketball schools get for an in-conference home game.
Thousands were on hand late into the night to welcome home the Final Four-bound Jayhawks and were treated to speeches, cheers and multiple trophy-hoistings from the team that had defeated North Carolina just hours before in St. Louis.
Kansas plays Ohio State in the second Final Four game on Saturday. It's safe to say that plenty of Jayhawks fans will be making the trip to New Orleans.
