COLUMBIA, Mo. - Think KU fans are heartbroken some of Jayhawk basketball's finest are not coming back to the team this year?

Well, they are not as torn up as 4-year-old fan Audriana Bauer.

Her parents began shooting video when they realized she was heartbroken.
The video has gone viral. She told her parents she can no longer watch the team.

Her mom and dad asked: "You're sad they're graduating? Are you sad?" Through tears, Audrey said, "I can't watch KU anymore!"

Mom Melissa said it was difficult not to laugh, "I was like: 'What a drama queen!' I thought she's seriously so heartbroken; I was like 'It's so sad but so funny!'"

Good news Audriana: KU Head Coach Bill Self just signed high school's number one recruit Andrew Wiggins, who is touted as the next big thing in college basketball.
