Northern Iowa player Ali Farokhmanesh permanently ingrained himself in the minds of Kansas fans in the 2010 NCAA tournament when he hit a a game-winning three-pointer to lead the Panthers' upset over the Jayhawks. Or so he thought.
The former Panthers star interviewed Kansas fans in Omaha for the Jayhawks' Round of 64 game Friday against New Mexico State in a video for the Omaha World-Herald.
Farokhmanesh, who is now an assistant coach with the Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball team, met up with Kansas fans young and old, and even an old classmate. But, well, Kansas fans had some trouble placing him.
Check out the video below:
Fans of both teams have reason to celebrate this March, as both programs returned to the NCAA tournament. Northern Iowa won its Round of 64 game to move on to face Louisville, while Kansas moved on to a date against Wichita State.
