SWEET 16

No. 1 seed Kansas (31-5, 14-4 Big 12) will take on No. 4 seed Michigan (28-7, 12-6 Big Ten) in the South Regional semifinals round of the NCAA Tournament, Friday, March 29, at 6:37 p.m. on TBS. Kansas defeated No. 16 seed Western Kentucky 64-57 on March 22 and North Carolina 70-58 on March 24 in Kansas City, Mo., to advance to the Sweet 16. Michigan defeated South Dakota State 71-56 on March 21 and VCU 78-53 on March 23 in Auburn Hills, Mich., to advance. In defeating Western Kentucky, Kansas won the school's 2,100th game and became the first school in NCAA history to have won at least 30 games for the fourth-straight season (note: Memphis won 30 for four-straight seasons from 2006-09 but later vacated the 2008 season). Kansas 10th-year head coach Bill Self won his 300th game while at KU in the win versus North Carolina.

Kansas is in its 42nd NCAA Tournament appearance, as well as its 24th-consecutive trip to the tournament, the longest active streak in the nation. KU is a number one seed for the 11th time since seeding began in 1979. The Jayhawks were a one seed in 1986-92-95-97-98-2002-07-08-10-11 and this season, with the last five under head coach Bill Self. This is the third-straight season the Jayhawks have advanced to the Sweet 16 and seventh time under 10-year head coach Bill Self. Historically, KU will be playing its 30th game in the round of 16 in NCAA Tournament history.

Including 2013, KU, which is ranked No. 3 in the latest Associated Press and USA Today/Coaches polls, has won nine-straight Big 12 regular-season championships dating back to 2005 and six conference postseason championships under Self.

With Kansas' women's team advancing to the 2013 NCAA Sweet 16, KU is the only school to have both its men's and women's teams reach the Sweet 16 each of the last two years.
