March Madness: Kansas Jayhawks clinch top seed in Southwest Region

Last season the Kansas Jayhawks were a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament and the clear favorite to win it all. Despite everyone jumping on the Jayhawks bandwagon before the first tip-off in the NCAA Tournament, Kansas just couldn’t live up to the hype or their number one seed as they were upset by the Northern Iowa Panthers in the second round.

This year the Kansas Jayhawks will head into the 2011 NCAA Tournament as a number one seed once again as they have played extremely well during the college basketball regular season and were more than worthy of the number one seed in the Southwest Region.

Even though the Jayhawks have put the huge upset against the Panthers behind them and no one really sees them repeating history this time around, there are a few teams in the league Southwest Region that might be able to knock off Bill Self’s squad.

As of right now, most people believe that the West Region is arguably the toughest to play in as the defending NCAA champion Duke Blue Devils will have their work cut out for them to reach the NCAA Championship game once again, but the Kansas Jayhawks will have to contend with the likes of the Louisville Cardinals (4), Georgetown Hoyas (6), Purdue Boilermakers (3) and most notably the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (2).

With all these teams gunning for the Final Four, the Kansas Jayhawks will almost certainly have their work cut out for them as they could be tested as early as the third round against the Rick Pitino’s Cardinals.

In the meantime though, they will be focusing on their first opponent as they will never underestimate another team in the NCAA Tournament ever again. Boston University (16) may not be a team that would be considered a force to be reckoned with, but anything can happen during March Madness.

Second Round: Kansas Jayhawks (1) vs. Boston University Terriers (16) Fri. March 18, 2011 6:50 p.m. EST
