LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas’ “Late Night in the Phog” featured all its normal pageantry with smoke, video montages and skits. About halfway through, however, some technical difficulty threatened to slow down the evening when the lights faded and the women’s team scrimmage was paused.
According to the campus fire marshal, someone at the scorer’s table hit the wrong switch instead of a buzzer. The women’s team soldiered on and continued to score under the emergency lights and played out the final 1:20.
Amid the fog and drone of plastic noisemakers, Kansas unveiled new Big 12 championship and Final Four banners which makes 55 and 14, respectively. A near-capacity crowd welcomed the 2012-13 men’s and women’s basketball teams for their first practice.
