LAWRENCE, Kan. — The Sunflower State is well represented in this year's NCAA tournament.
Kansas led the way with a No. 2 seed when the bracket was unveiled Sunday, and the Jayhawks were followed closely by in-state brethren Wichita State and Kansas State.
The Shockers received a No. 5 seed while the Wildcats were seeded eighth.
It's the first time since 1988 that all three of the state's Division I programs made the field at the same time. That was the year Kansas and Kansas State met in a regional final, and the Jayhawks went on to beat Oklahoma for the national championship.
Kansas State opens against Southern Miss and Wichita State plays VCU on Thursday. Kansas faces Detroit on Friday night.
