    KU Basketball

    College basketball is back, and that means another year with National Championship hopes for the Kansas Jayhawks. Watching the Jayhawks play inside historic Allen Fieldhouse is an experience you do not want to miss out on. With many greats coming in and out of these doors, it's an event you'll always remember.  

    KU Basketball History

    The first season of KU basketball dates back to 1898-1899. Dr. James Naismith wrote the official rules of basketball in 1892. Six years later, Naismith began the men's basketball program at the University of Kansas. The first few seasons of KU basketball were held locally against YMCA teams. James Naismith held such an important part within the team and its development that the basketball court inside Allen Fieldhouse is named "James Naismith Court." Since Naismith, KU basketball history will go on with years of success, acomplishments, coaching legends and Hall of Fame players.

    After Naismith retired, Dr. Forrest C. "Phog" Allen was requested to coach KU. KU's basketball history truly began to flourish because of Coach Allen. As a former player of Naismith, Phog Allen knew the game and was ready to take on the challenge. Coach Allen proved to be one of the best coaches of all time and earned the title as the "Father of Basketball Coaching." Under Coach Allen, the University of Kansas men's basketball program won the NCAA championship title in 1922, 1923 and 1952. Because of his success and leadership, Allen Fieldhouse was constructed and developed in 1955 named after Phog Allen. Upon walking in and hanging over Naismith Court, the famous Kansas words "Pay Heed, All Who Enter. Beware of the Phog."

    Once a player and assistant coach, Dick Harp was hired as the head coach for KU after Coach Allen. Some of Kansas's greatest players were coached by harp. Wilt Chamberlain was by far the most legendary player. Recruited by Phog Allen, Chamberlain played under Harp until he went to the Harlem Globetrotters to continue ball. After eight years, Ted Owens came in and took over the Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball team. Jo Jo White, Walt Wesley and Darnell Valentine were All-Americans under Coach Owens. A little under two decades of coaching, Owens left KU and Larry Brown came in after coaching for the NBA. 

    Larry Brown at KU lead the Jayhawks to many wins and a National Championship in 1988. With Danny Manning as the lead competitor for the Hawks, during the 1988 season, the team went through March Madness to win the title 83-79 over Oklahoma. Because the team lost 11 times that season, the most losses for a National Championship team to accrue throughout the season, the 1988 Jayhawks were known as "Danny and the Miracles." After many years at KU, Coach Brown had a 135-44 record.
