LAWRENCE, Kan. - A small number of college arenas are mentioned in pregame conversations and emerge as characters all their own. Kansas' Allen Fieldhouse, named after legendary Kansas coach Phog Allen, who coached there for 39 years, is a storied basketball cathedral here. The 16,300-seat gym with red-and-blue bleachers is part Smithsonian and part basketball mecca. It is regarded as one of the most intimidating venues for visiting teams. With 29 consecutive wins at Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas has the nation's second-longest active home winning streak.

Temple's basketball team prides itself on facing tough nonconference opponents. That's why the Owls will play national powers Kansas, Duke, and Syracuse next season. The Kansas game will be part of a home-and-home series. Temple will face the Jayhawks next season at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan. The teams will meet again during the 2014-15 season in Philadelphia, most likely at the Wells Fargo Center. Temple also is scheduled to play Duke next season at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. It will mark the third consecutive season the teams will square off. The Owls will face Syracuse in next season's Gotham Classic at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Once again, Temple's basketball team will play the defending national champion next season. The Owls, who traveled to Florida last December, will be at Kansas and historic Allen Fieldhouse on Dec. 20 as part of a two-game trip that also includes a stop at Long Beach 2 nights later. In 2009-10, the Jayhawks will come to the Wachovia Center. "This is a great opportunity to play a series against one of the top programs in the nation," said Temple coach Fran Dunphy, whose team made it to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001, in his second season on North Broad Street.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - This one got away from Temple down the stretch. Fifteen days after beating the nation's third-ranked team at a neutral site, the Owls went on the road Sunday hoping to knock off the country's sixth-ranked team, Kansas, on its home court. The Jayhawks have not lost at home in nearly two years. And riding the energy from the 16,300 in attendance, Kansas went on a game-ending, 15-5 run to take a 69-62 victory at Allen Fieldhouse. "It came down to the last three to four minutes," said Temple guard Khalif Wyatt, who finished with a game-high 26 points.

Iowa went to great lengths to halt the longest home winning streak in the nation - three-point distance, to be exact. Kent McCausland hit two three-pointers in the final 1:40 as the Hawkeyes beat No. 10 Kansas, 85-81, last night, ending the Jayhawks' home winning streak at 62 games. "For crying out loud, this is the greatest win in the history of the Hawkeyes," McCausland said. It was Kansas' first loss at Allen Fieldhouse since Feb. 20, 1994, when Missouri beat the Jayhawks, 81-74.

The resilience of youth being what it is, the St. Joseph's Hawks were just beginning the recovery process, digging out from the avalanche of a 91-51 pounding by second-ranked Kansas in Lawrence in their season opener. First, though, there would be a final indignity: As they filed out of fabled Allen Fieldhouse and onto the team bus early Wednesday morning, they were pelted by wind-blown snowflakes the size of silver dollars. It was a slippery conclusion to a jittery debut. "No disrespect, but we brought boys to play against men," Phil Martelli said after the deep, powerful and seasoned Jayhawks handed St. Joe's its most lopsided defeat since he became head coach 10 years ago. "Hopefully, the next opportunity we get," Martelli said, "we'll play better individually and collectively.

Roy Williams and North Carolina will talk through the weekend about his interest in returning to the program where he learned to coach under Dean Smith. Tar Heels athletic director Dick Baddour said yesterday the Kansas coach wasn't yet ready to make a decision after 2 days of discussions. "Coach Williams and I feel the timing is too near the end of the Final Four and there is too much going on in Lawrence at this time for us to conclude our talks," Baddour said. Kansas lost to Syracuse, 81-78, in the championship game Monday night.

Riding an impressive five-game winning streak, the Villanova basketball team will take on its most difficult challenge of the season when it visits No. 13 Kansas tonight at the famed Allen Fieldhouse. A sellout crowd of 16,300 is expected to be on hand to create one of the most electric atmospheres in all of college basketball. Villanova enters the contest with an 8-2 record, while Kansas is 7-2. "I like the way we're playing and improving each game, and this is the perfect time for us to play a team like Kansas," Villanova coach Jay Wright said.

Brandon Rush made a successful early return from ACL surgery, scoring seven points and giving No. 4 Kansas a physical and emotional lift in an otherwise routine 92-60 rout of visiting Washburn. Rush, the 6-6 All-Big 12 guard who had planned to be flashing his moves in the NBA this year before injuring himself in a practice game in May, was 3-for-5 from the floor and also had three rebounds in 12 minutes, all in the first half. Wearing a heavy brace on the right knee, the Jayhawks' leading scorer each of the past two seasons went hard to the floor twice and appeared to be fine.

Everyone associated with Kentucky basketball is pretending not to remember, but don't think that 73-46 whipping Kansas put on the Wildcats last season isn't on the Kentucky players' minds as they go into today's NCAA West Regional second-round game against the top-seeded Jayhawks in Chicago. "It was like a bomb went off in Allen Fieldhouse," Kentucky senior Bobby Perry said. "I really can't remember any part of that game, except that they played really well and we played extremely bad. "But this is a different day. We have a different force with us. " That would be Randolph Morris, Kentucky's all-SEC junior center.

TEMPLE SENIOR Khalif Wyatt seems to be playing the game in slow motion because he sees the game in slow motion. He learned the game by watching it on television. He watched it far more than he played it. He learned it so well that in the last month, national TV audiences have seen him score 33 points at Madison Square Garden in an upset of No. 3 Syracuse and 26 at Kansas in a near-upset of No. 6 KU. "Growing up I was always fat and slow so, if you're going to play, you've got to be able to do something," Wyatt said.

TRADITION FOR the modern college basketball player is the uniform his team wore last season. History is the last game, if not the last possession. So how exactly do you account for the University of Kansas? Smack in the middle of the country, hard by I-70, with its throwback gym right in the middle of campus on Naismith Drive, KU is as much a feeling as it is a place. But it is a place that has a longstanding love affair with its basketball team that shows no signs of abating.

IT IS TEST TIME for No. 9 Kansas. Jeff Withey had 17 points and 13 rebounds, Ben McLemore added 14 points and the Jayhawks tuned up for a big weekend matchup at No. 7 Ohio State by romping over visiting Richmond, 87-59, on Tuesday night. Travis Releford and Naadir Tharpe each added 11 points, and Elijah Johnson had seven assists for the Jayhawks (9-1), who will ride an eight-game win streak into Saturday's rematch of last year's national semifinal, won by Kansas. "Now we'll find out how good we are," said Kansas coach Bill Self, whose team has romped to eight straight victories since losing to Michigan State at Atlanta's Georgia Dome on Nov. 13. "Let's be serious: The season starts Saturday.

Sherron Collins had career-high 33 points and made nearly every key play down the stretch, helping No. 1 Kansas pull out a gutty 71-66 win over visiting Cornell last night. Kansas (14-0) overcame a rare off night from the field - 36 percent - and shoddy defense in the first half, making just enough plays down the stretch in one of the toughest victories during its 51-game home winning streak. "Tonight was like a tournament game," Collins said. "When things aren't going good, you just have to find a way to win and I was that way to win. " Cornell (12-3)

THE LIACOURAS CENTER opened on Dec. 9, 1997. The game against Fresno State and Jerry Tarkanian was a sellout (10,000 and change). The building hasn't seen all that many since then. This afternoon will be an exception. For good reason. It's the first time that a top-ranked team has played there. Kansas (12-0) has won 50 in a row at home, including, for what it's worth, a 90-65 victory over La Salle on Dec. 9. North Broad Street isn't Allen Fieldhouse. Or even the Pavilion. Ask Villanova.

It's striking, the solitude, how calm and quiet and peaceful are the farmlands that spread as far as the eye can see to either side of the turnpike that splits Kansas. With little traffic and no lines at the tollbooths, there are only sprawling fields, silos, and an abundance of deer. Philadelphia it's not. Off the Kansas Turnpike, in the artsy hamlet of Lawrence, a town about one-twentieth the size of home, is where freshmen Marcus and Markieff Morris chose to play college basketball.
