It is not as if Kentucky Wildcats basketball fans have not had enough to worry about in this winter of UK basketball discontent.

So don’t look now, Kentucky’s 8-14 slog and a late-season Kansas hot streak that has seen Bill Self’s Jayhawks (18-8) win six of their last seven games has KU in a threatening position to catch UK in the college basketball all-time wins race.

After Kentucky lost to Florida on Saturday and Kansas upset previously unbeaten Baylor, the advantage for the Wildcats (2,326 all-time wins) over the Jayhawks (2,320) is down to six victories.
