'Fast and loose' Jayhawks improve to Elite Eight

Somehow it's worked out that Duke, Syracuse and Clemson are all in the Midwest region, playing in Omaha. However, he led Kansas with four assists and four rebounds to help the top-seeded Jayhawks to a 40-27 lead at the break. For the second straight game, Big 12 Player of the Year Devonte' Graham was off - he scored 16 points, but shot just 4-of-12 from the field and committed three turnovers - and it again didn't matter, illustrating the Big 12 champion's depth and explosiveness.

What it means for next season: Reed's emergence, Thomas' work in the paint and the potential development of Oliver over this offseason gives Clemson the foundation of another solid unit.

Jalen Brunson poured in 27 points and Omari Spellman added 18 with eight rebounds for the 2016 national champs. Mitch Lightfoot played just two minutes, Self indicating it was because De Sousa was performing so well. Villanova will play the victor of the regional semi-final later Friday night between No2 seed Purdue and third-seeded Texas Tech for a spot in the Final Four. The Orange were the last team selected to the tournament before winning three straight, including a First Four victory against Arizona State.

Kansas made it through the Sweet 16 for the third year in a row as a No1 seed after surviving a late scare and beating fifth-seeded Clemson 80-76 in a Midwest region semi-final.

That will bring Duke, a 69-65 victor over Syracuse, and that will ratchet up the meaning of Azubuike in the middle, what with Kansas's four-and-one approach this season differing from so many of Self's past teams and what with the margin for error not thick. In fact, this is the sixth time Bill Self's team has been seeded first since winning it all in 2008; the Jayhawks haven't made the Final Four one of those times.

"We'll sit down and look at where we are contractually and go from there", Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said this week according to ESPN. "We finished the game about as poorly as a team can, but we got the W. We know we've got to be a lot better on Sunday".

Community members from central Minnesota are gathering for a "sibling march" as a part of the March for Our Lives movement. The march in D.C. officially gets underway at noon. "Enough is enough", said Demetri Hoth, a student from MSDHS.

Still, it could've ended on Friday - in horrifying fashion - after Clemson stormed back from a 20-point deficit that stunned a crowd filled mostly with fans from Lawrence and surrounding areas, which are only a few hours from Omaha. "We get to play off of him".

After scoring 22 points in each of Clemson's tournament wins, against New Mexico State and Auburn, Gabe DeVoe netted a game-high 31 in defeat while also leading the Tigers with nine rebounds. But Mitchell's quick three-point heave from the right of the top of the key never had much chance, and Devoe's ensuing force from the right side plunked off the rim, and Kansas spent the rest of the seemingly endless time holding on. Kansas felt the pressure but held Clemson at bay to pull away with the victory.

"We didn't have our best game". We always say, 'Throw the ball inside. Kansas came into the game a 4 ½-point favorite.

The Jayhawks (30-7) cruised to a 13-point halftime lead and then canned four 3-pointers to begin the second half, including two by Newman. Udoka Azubuike looked strong in his first start of the tournament, with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

What a wild 12 months it's been for Brownell, the Clemson coach.
