Iowa 96, Indiana 90 (OT): That’s all, folks

Little can compare with Jayhawks' Big 12 title streak

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- There is perhaps nobody better than Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown to put into perspective the remarkable streak of conference championships put together by Kansas, one that could stretch to 13 in a row with a victory over TCU on Wednesday night.
