For the 11th time in Bill Self’s 15 years, the Kansas Jayhawks are headed to the Sweet Sixteen. On Saturday, they got past the Seton Hall Pirates to clinch an appearance in the second weekend of the NCAA tournament. But among a crazy weekend, some of the other top seeds across college basketball weren’t as lucky as Kansas. We recap a crazy, unpredictable, and incredible second round of the NCAA tournament, breaking down all of the March Madness upsets and making predictions for the next round.

The stakes are getting higher and higher, and the next opponent for Kansas will be the Clemson Tigers in Friday’s regional semifinal in Omaha. We break down the matchup between opponents that have never played head-to-head and give our keys to getting back to another Elite Eight appearance.
