The Jayhawks had a pretty bad omen before their destruction at the hands of Kentucky

What’s worse: Getting crushed by a scoreboard or by Oscar Tshiebwe? Cuz Kansas sure did plenty of one of ‘em.

Perhaps the Kansas Jayhawks knew what was coming Saturday night.

With a huge game against the Kentucky Wildcats on deck, the Jayhawks ended up getting crushed in historic fashion.

That came after one of their players was nearly crushed by a scoreboard while running out to the court for pregame introductions.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured as a result of the malfunction. But you have to admit it was certainly a sign of things to come.

Because frankly, it couldn’t have felt much better than getting crunched by Oscar Tshiebwe for a rebound, which Kansas did plenty of.
