Penn gave Kansas a battle, but the top-seeded Jayhawks pulled away from the No. 16 seed Quakers in the second half to win 76-60 on Thursday in a first-round NCAA Tournament game in Wichita, Kansas. The most interesting aspect of the game should be the 3-point line, where the Jayhawks shoot 40.3 percent. No. 3 seed MI will match up against No. 14 Montana in the opening round and play on Thursday in Wichita, Kan.

Graham is a senior guard who is a finalist for the Naismith Trophy.

Bobby Hurley's team at Arizona State would have to win an extra game to get there.

The 2018 NCAA men's basketball tournament officially tipped off last night in Dayton, Ohio.

Graham, perhaps atoning for a miserable performance in last year's tournament loss to OR, also had six rebounds and six assists as the Jayhawks cruised into a second-round matchup with eighth-seeded Seton Hall OR No. 9 seed North Carolina State in the loaded Midwest Region.

"We got smacked around pretty good the first two years", recalled Donahue, who's built the Quakers up to their former glory in just three seasons.

Kansas, of course, is still formidable, coming off its 14th straight Big 12 regular-season title.

Kansas and Penn will play in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, March 15.

Pennsylvania is 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in its last five games against the Big 12. Michigan State, the Big Ten regular-season champ, meets Bucknell on Friday in Detroit.

Kansas will play Saturday against the victor of No. 8 seeded Seton Hall vs. The Quakers defeated Dayton and St. Joseph's of the Atlantic 10 in non-conference play, and also faced Villanova, the No. 1 seed in the South, losing by 28 points.

The party is open to the public, and organizers said they hope fans come out to cheer on the Jayhawks. If Kansas advances to the Elite 8 to play either one of them, they'll be the underdog.

The inclusion of the Sooners, who lost eight of their last 10 to finish 18-13, raised some eyebrows. "We haven't done that", he said. In all likelihood, one of them will win the four games necessary for a chance to add to their school's extensive trophy case. "We just play for each other".

In terms of regions, Duke got a tough draw being in the same region as Kansas and Michigan State. Wade is likely to be the toughest matchup, as his size and physicality resemble an very bad lot of players the Bluejays struggled to defend this year. Both were entangled in the federal investigation into college basketball that cost coach Bruce Pearl his top assistant. Could this be the year that we finally see it and, more pressingly, will it be in this game? All the challenges that we've gone through.

He flew on a chartered plane for the first time on the team's trip to Wichita. "We should feel free and bring it to the game".

History suggests that a Michigan State-Duke matchup in Omaha would be bad news for the Spartans. Just look to previous year for an instance that seems similar to this one. He missed the three games in the Big 12 tournament with a left knee injury. His season average of 13.0 rebounds leads the nation. He was a key member of the 1982-1983 North Carolina State team that completed its Cinderella run with a national championship over heavily-favored Houston.
