Inside the Paint logo.On Saturday, Kansas brought home its first Big 12 tournament championship since 2013 when it beat West Virginia in the title game. The Jayhawks have won 14 straight basketball games and enter the NCAA tournament as hot as any team in the country. It’s an exciting time of the year to be a KU fan. We also run through the other major conference championships, and talk about which direction the big-name teams are trending entering the tournament.

If you haven’t already joined, make SURE you join the 2016 Rock Chalk Blog NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge! Here’s a link to all of the information. The winner will receive KU prizes and an interview on Inside the Paint! Compete your brackets against the Rock Chalk Blog/Inside the Paint team!

The Selection Show was yesterday, so it’s time to talk brackets and March Madness! Ryan Landreth, Joshua Brisco, and Daniel Cunningham make their picks, share their upsets, and talk about what potential matchups are the most troublesome for Kansas.

We end the show by previewing No. 1 Kansas and No. 16 Austin Peay, the first of a possible six NCAA tournament games played by the Jayhawks in March.
