Kansas fans rejoice after Jayhawks defeat Missouri in ‘Border War’ charity game

Kansas-Border War-Missouri

Kansas and Missouri were reunited on the basketball court for the first time in five years Sunday, as the Jayhawks defeated the Tigers 93-87 in a preseason exhibition at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

The return of the ‘Border War’ — once a great Big 12 rivalry — was made even more special by the cause. All proceeds from the game went to hurricane relief efforts in the United States. More than $1.7 million was raised from the game.

Kansas fans celebrated both the win on the court and the “win” in raising money to be donated. Here’s what Jayhawks fans had to say on Twitter after the game:

Kansas enters the 2017-18 season as the favorite to win the Big 12 crown. The Jayhawks now have a win over one of their biggest rivals before the season has even begun.
