It was senior night as the Kansas Jayhawks hosted their final men’s basketball home game against Big 12 Rival West Virginia Mountaineers on Tuesday March 3rd, and Pittcraft Printing sponsored the event. 13,000 3-Point Card/Posters were printed by Pittcraft and distributed to fans. Pittcraft has been printing these cards each year for Jayhawk fans to hold up when their team scores a 3-point shot. The front side has an image of a hand holding up three fingers, while the back side features photos of the team during their 2014-15 Season.
It was a suspenseful night at Allen Fieldhouse as fans watched their Jayhawks trail by double digits for most of the night. Both teams were beat up. KU's Perry Ellis left the game in the first half due to knee injury. Many wondered if KU would suffer their first home defeat of the season, and fail to achieve their eleventh straight Big XII regular season Conference Title.. But the Jayhawks were able to chip away at West Virginia’s lead and put the game into overtime. In the end, Kansas came away with a 76-69 victory, avoiding the first sweep by a Big XII team during the Bill Self era. This solidified KU’s 11th straight Big XII Conference Title, a feat that Pittcraft has been honored to be a part of for each of those years as a Corporate Sponsor. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Go KU!
