The Jayhawks moved past UConn in the round of 32 on Saturday behind a dominant first half. We talk about the importance of Frank Mason, the historical significance of Perry Ellis’ contributions, and how much contribution KU needs from its bench to keep advancing in the tournament.

We recap the rest of a crazy second round of the tournament and preview every Sweet Sixteen matchup, including Kansas’ battle with the Maryland Terrapins. It’s a matchup that has a lot of Jayhawk fans nervous, but we all take different angles in forecasting why KU will advance another round in the tournament.
