Kansas earns No. 1 seed in NCAA stacked West Region


Kansas didn’t get a No. 1 seed in the Midwest, costing the Jayhawks a chance to potentially play the regional round just down the road in Kansas City.

The Jayhawks are still a No. 1 seed, however, and will have their coach back for their repeat bid as national champions.

Bypassed for Houston in the Midwest Region, Kansas is the top seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament and learned coach Bill Self is expected to be on the sidelines when the Jayhawks face Howard in Des Moines, Iowa on Thursday. Self missed the Big 12 tournament after complaining of chest tightness and undergoing an audition procedure, but was released from hospital on Sunday.

“He’s one of the greatest coaches of all time, so that’s a big bonus for us,” Kansas guard Dajuan Harris Jr. said. “He’s been in March Madness for a long time. He knows what he’s doing and we just have to support him.

Kansas (27-7) won its first two Big 12 Tournament games without Self before losing 76-56 to No. 7 Texas in the title game.

The Jayhawks looked like they were going to slide to a No. 2 seed when top-ranked Houston secured No. 1 in the Midwest, but the NCAA selection committee still made it the No. 1 in a western region that ends in Las Vegas in March. 23-25.
