Suddenly, the college basketball world was riveted to the Kansas-Detroit game. The Jayhawks were a No. 2 seed, the Titans seeded 15th, and hours earlier, the tournament was turned upside down with a pair of titanic upsets in meetings between those seeds. Would KU follow Missouri and Duke into the dust pan? The losing streak of second seeds ended with the Jayhawks, who pounded Detroit 65-50.
