About last night…
Kansas City will host Kansas and Kansas State for the first weekend of the tournament. The Jayhawks landed a number one seed, second overall in the tournament, while Kansas State came in as a four-seed.
Missouri will travel to Lexington, Kentucky to play Colorado State as a nine-seed. A victory would give them the honor of getting smoked (potentially) by top overall seed Louisville.
Kansas won the Big XII tournament in convincing fashion.
