Yep, these two could have faced off last year in March Madness but Arkansas had others ideas.
Kansas has not played a (public) exhibition yet.
What happened the last time they played?
It’s been a bit.
The last three matchups have come in March, with Kansas eliminating Illinois in 2011’s second round 73-59.
Illinois last beat Kansas in 2001’s Sweet 16, 80-64 (Bill Self was the head man in Champaign).
All-time, the series is tied at three. Sunday’s game will not officially change that, but it will provide some bragging rights.
