The potential Round of 32 matchup between Kansas and Wichita State would be one of the best games in the NCAA tournament.
The Kansas Jayhawks won the Big 12 regular season title, and they now embark upon their NCAA Tournament journey.
After winning the Big 12 regular season title, the Kansas Jayhawks came up just short in the conference tournament.
Record: 26 – 8 (13 – 5)
Region-Seed: No. 2 seed in Midwest
Conference: Big 12
How They Qualified: At-Large
The Kansas Jayhawks started off the 2014-15 college basketball season by getting crushed by the Kentucky Wildcats 72 – 40, but followed up with a 13 – 1 run that went all the way to mid-January. Kansas, after winning the Big 12 regular season title, lost in the Big 12 Tournament final, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous.
The biggest positive for Kansas moving into March is that they have won seven games this season by two scores or less, meaning that this is one of the best teams in the country when it comes to closing out games. Hopefully, this translates to success in the NCAA Tournament where most match ups should be highly contested.
