  • Hardwood History

      Larry Brown's Kansas Jayhawks entered the '87-88 season with high expectations and a #7 pre season ranking.  They also had the nations best player in senior forward Danny Manning.  Manning was brilliant all year averaging 25 points and 9 rebounds per game and winning all the National Player of Year awards.  However, a rough 0-2 start set the tone for an up and down season that saw KU fall completely out of the rankings. 

      After finishing the regular season 18-11 Kansas was given the #6 seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA Tournament.  Wins over Xavier, Murray State, Vanderbilt and instate rival Kansas State but Brown's Jayhawks back in the Final Four. 

      A 66-59 win over #2 seed Duke setup a National Championship game against conference foe, #1 Oklahoma.  Led by Manning's incredible 31 points and 18 rebounds Kansas prevailed 83-79.  The "Danny and the Miracles" legend was born although Manning didn't want anything to do with the nickname.

      "That nickname kind of rubbed me a different type of way because basketball is a team game and everyone has to sacrifice for a whole.  It was Chris Piper, it was Archie Marshall it was Milt Newton.  We came together and our journey was on the same path."
