Kansas may trail Baylor in the Big 12 Conference race. But the Jayhawks' NCAA tournament résumé keeps getting prettier to the point where one loss for the Bears would position them for the top overall No. 1 seed.

Kansas (21-3, 10-1) won their ninth in a row and added yet another Quadrant 1 win to their tourney portfolio by defeating West Virginia on the road in Morgantown. WVU (18-6) is a projected No. 3 seed and the win gives Kansas a nation-leading 11 Quad 1 victories.
