The late Dr. F. C. "Phog" Allen was basketball coach of the Kansas Jayhawks for 39 years after being mentored by the inventor of the game, James Naismith. This building which bears Allen's name will turn 50 years old on Tuesday. It's regarded as one of the most amazing venues for college hoops anywhere. Since the 1984 season, the Jayhawks are an incredible 282-22 in this building.
