Kansas sure loves its last-second victories.
Once again this year, the Jayhawks won thanks to a game-winning shot to take down rival Kansas State 90-88 and extended its home winning streak to 50 games in the process.
With the game all tied up and with just under five seconds left in the game, Kansas guard Svi Mykhailiuk inbounded the ball before getting it right back as he went coast-to-coast for the game-winning score. But as you can see in the video below, Mykhailiuk may have traveled “just” a bit.

Despite an obvious travel that wasn’t called, the play stood as Kansas escaped with the win.
“I think everybody knows what happened. Want to see my phone? There’s a hundred [messages],” Kansas State Coach Bruce Weber told reporters after the game. “Everybody knows what happened. I mean, it’s obvious. The TV people came up to me. Everyone.”
Twitter users had a lot of fun of the game-ending play.
Svi's favorite song must be "Travelin man" by Ricky Nelson, this was just a tribute….that's all.. https://t.co/esMz5dL4c1

When my daughter said "Walk Chalk Jayhawk" I thought it was because she can't pronounce her "R"s yet.
