This would be an amazing match-up against two historical basketball programs in the Maui Maui Invitational.
Similar in comparison to North Carolina and UCLA, these two basketball programs historically have been very successful with Kanas having won four national championships, for the seventh-most in the country, and as mentioned earlier, UCLA has captured 11 national championships, which is the most of any program in college basketball history.
UCLA leads the all-time series 10-8. The first meeting between Kansas and UCLA took in 1958 with UCLA winning the game by a score of 75-64. Five times these two programs have played one another have come in NCAA Tournament play with UCLA winning each of those games.
This game if they were to face one another in the Maui Maui Invitational would be an outstanding game to watch against two “blue blood” programs.
