Kansas fans ranked as one of 16 most obnoxious fans in college basketball

LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNT) - Just as the NCAA tournament is underway, a new ranking by Thrillest listed one local team as having one of The 16 Most Obnoxious Fans in College Basketball.

Thrillest called the University of Kansas a "great program in a basketball-mad region."

However, KU fans came in at No. 15 on the list of most obnoxious fans. Thrillest said, "With nobody around to tell them otherwise, Kansas fans think they're the kings of the sport because James Naismith, inventor of basketball, coached there." 

The description even compared KU fans to "[New England] Patriots fans with more pleasant accents." 

The University of Maryland topped the list at No. 1, following Butler, Duke, Oregon and North Carolina.

Kansas will play Seton Hall in the 2nd Round Saturday at 6:10 p.m.
