The men’s game was on TV, the women’s was on 1350 AM radio which might as well been from western Canada because it doesn’t come through in Johnson County after dark.
It’s tough enough to lose to Nebraska in football in their first season in the Big Ten but to lose to both the men’s and women’s basketball teams in the same night…
