It was shaping up to be another second-game nightmare for the Kansas Jayhawks in the NCAA men's basketball tournament. But KU slipped past Purdue last (SUN) night, 63-60 to make it into the Sweet 16. KPR's Greg Echlin has more.
Meanwhile, in women's action, the 11th-seeded Jayhawks pulled-off a 57-49 upset Sunday against former Big 12 opponent Nebraska, the Number 6 seed in the Des Moines Regional. At 20 and 12, the KU women are back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000. The Jayhawks will play Number 3 seed Delaware in the second round at 8:30pm tomorrow (TUE).
