As the only remaining No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, Kansas enters the Elite Eight hoping to avoid an epic upset as the world looks on.

Saturday’s shenanigans also reportedly included four made half-court shots, something Big 12 Player of the Year Ochai Agbaji said the team has “never seen” in practice, per ESPN. Perhaps the makes could be an indication of a little March Madness momentum building in Kansas’s favor?
Regardless of whether it’s just good luck or a sign of what’s to come, Kansas appears to be in a good place ahead of the biggest game of the season thus far. We’ll see if the free-flowing practice leads to Bill Self and the Jayhawks reaching their first Final Four since the 2017-18 season.
