KU. K-State, Wichita State Set to Play in NCAA Tourney


The NCAA men's basketball tournament brackets are set. While Wichita State has been sent to Salt Lake City, Kansas and Kansas State will play closer to home. The Jayhawks, who are seeded number-one in the South - and the Wildcats, who are the number-4 seed in the West - will play at the Sprint Center in Kansas city this Friday. As KPR's Greg Echlin reports, history doesn't favor the Jayhawks based on their last trip to Kansas City as a top seed.

The estimated start for KU's game Friday night against Western Kentucky is 8:50. K-State plays either Boise State or LaSalle Friday afternoon around 2:10. Wichita State opens Thursday afternoon at 12:40 against Pittsburgh.

On the women's side, Wichita State has clinched a berth to the NCAA tournament. The Wichita State women won their conference tournament yesterday (SUN), with a 69-to-65 victory over Illinois State. Later today (MON), when the women's field is announced, the Kansas Jayhawks hope to be named as an at-large team.

Also, in women's college basketball, the Emporia State Lady Hornets are just one victory away from making it to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Division II tournament. The Lady Hornets, now 23-and-8 on the season, will play Augustana of South Dakota tonight (MON). Tipoff at the regional site (Lee Arena in Topeka) is at 7 p.m.
