It’s the first round of the NCAA tournament, which means that upsets and surprises are around every corner. That wasn’t the case for No. 1 Kansas, who opened up their tournament with an easy victory over No. 16 Penn. We talk about the biggest storyline for the Jayhawks leading up to their next game: Udoka Azubuike.

The round of 64 was chaotic in a historic way, as we witnessed history by UMBC taking down No. 1 Virginia. We recap the entire first round and then preview Kansas’ next test, a round of 32 matchup with the No. 8 Seton Hall Pirates. Keys, takeaways, and predictions are all around.
