The Jayhawks continued their incredible run by beating the Duke Blue Devils in the game of the NCAA tournament. Their reward is their first trip to the Final Four in six seasons. Malik Newman is your hero, as he continues to have the tournament of his life by scoring all 13 points the Jayhawks put up in overtime. It was an instant classic, but the result is what left KU fans so pleased.

We spend all of our time talking about the Elite Eight round. Stay tuned later in the week for our in-depth Final Four preview about the Jayhawks’ next opponent: the No. 1 Villanova Wildcats.
