ST. LOUIS — Tyshawn Taylor and the rest of the Kansas Jayhawks know better than to focus on seeds this time of year. Especially when it comes to those nasty No. 11s.
The second-seeded Jayhawks play No. 11 seed North Carolina State in the Midwest Regional semifinals Friday night. It was another No. 11 seed, VCU, which ousted the Jayhawks one game shy of reaching the Final Four last season.
Taylor has said all along that seeds don't matter come March. It was a verse he repeated at least half a dozen times for all manner of questions before Kansas practiced at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on Thursday.
Kansas has not faced a team seeded better than ninth the past three seasons. That includes a loss to No. 9 seed Northern Iowa in 2010.
