Old Home Week in Kansas

The occasion was a preseason game between the Seattle Supersonics and the Chicago Bulls, but it happened at Kansas University, where key players from each team were once teammates. In fact, the Bulls' Kirk Hinrich and the Sonics' Nick Collison not only played together back in the years 1999 thru 2003, they led the Jayhawks to the national championship game their senior year. And you can see what they've been up to since then.

Hinrich ended up with 11 points to Collison's 12, but the Bulls pulled the game out in OT, 110-105. Pretty darn close, and that's how most fans in Allen Fieldhouse wanted it.
