There was a great amount of hand-wringing after last year’s Sunflower Showdown men’s basketball game at Bramlage Coliseum.

Kansas guard Brannen Greene spoke about his recent doghouse visit after a slam dunk as time expired on the Jayhawks' 77-59 win over Kansas State on Feb. 3 and the prospect of facing the Wildcats again on Saturday in Manhattan.
