Udoka Azubuike, who has played just 25 combined minutes in Kansas' first two NCAA tournament games, will not have a minutes restriction versus Clemson in the Sweet 16.
Early exits by Arizona and Oklahoma might have opened the door for the likes of Duke's Marvin Bagley III, Kansas' Devonte' Graham and Villanova's Jalen Brunson to win the Wooden Award.
What happened in the first two rounds? It was crazy, but we're moving on because the Sweet 16 has arrived. The blue bloods are here, but so are the wild cards, including two(!) 11-seeds. Enjoy the games, but here's what's going to happen this weekend.
OK, let's get a few things straight: A revolution is not happening in college basketball. Nor is what is happening in this NCAA tournament unprecedented. We've had crazier tournaments. What isn't crazy is The Bilastrator's order of the 16 remaining teams.
So your bracket is busted, your original champion is already out of the tournament and you need someone new to follow. We've done the research for you already. All you have to do now is pick the team that best fits your style.
Behold! It's our unassailable list of the most dominant champions of the past 20 years, headed by one very recent, very dominant basketball team.
Let's try this again. It's not exactly the 16 teams we expected, but it's time to take a good look and put them in the proper order. The top teams aren't that shocking, but then the surprises start.
Welcome to the Sweet 16, Sister Jean. Loyola-Chicago's Cinderella story is just one delightful development in this year's field. Half the 1-seeds are gone, and there's no telling who has the upper hand to reach the Final Four.
The field has been trimmed. Only 16 are left standing. It's time to look at what they did to get here and, more importantly, what they need to do if they hope to keep moving along in March.
Kansas center Udoka Azubuike returned for the Jayhawks for 10 points and seven rebounds in 22 minutes, his first meaningful playing time since recovering from injury.
Malik Newman scored 28 points, Udoka Azubuike stood toe-to-toe with Seton Hall's bruising Angel Delgado, and No. 1 seed Kansas held off the plucky Pirates 83-79 on Saturday night to send the Jayhawks to their third consecutive Sweet 16.
The first day of the second round begins with top seed Villanova taking on the electrifying Collin Sexton and Alabama, and it also will feature Cinderella hopeful Buffalo facing Kentucky.
Kansas center Udoka Azubuike played only three minutes in the Jayhawks' first-round win over Penn, but head coach Bill Self is looking to get 15 to 20 minutes from him Saturday against Seton Hall.
Kansas coach Bill Self says he hopes center Udoka Azubuike is available to play Saturday in the Jayhawks' NCAA tournament second-round game.
Devonte Graham ignited sluggish Kansas midway through the first half, pouring in 29 points and lifting the top-seeded Jayhawks to a tough, grind-it-out 76-60 victory over No. 16 Pennsylvania in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday.
From standout performers such as Trae Young and Deandre Ayton to potential Cinderellas such as Davidson and Loyola-Chicago, here's what you need to know about the 16 first-round games on Thursday.
Kansas coach Bill Self is encouraged by Udoka Azubuike's progress and says the big man may be available for emergency situations.
Kansas head coach Bill Self joins the show to discuss his team's tourney bid, the Jayhawks' 12 straight Big 12 championships and their matchup against the 16 seeded Penn.
