No. 1 Kansas Falls at No. 11 West Virginia, 74-63

"West Virginia was ultra-quick and they were turned-up for tonight," Bill Self said. "We didn't attack West Virginia's system very well. In practice I really thought we were prepared, but obviously we weren't. Our coaching staff takes responsibility for that. We have good ball-handling guards, but we looked slow. They beat us on all the competitive plays – the second-shots, the 50-50 balls."

Kansas guard Wayne Selden Jr. finally has a chance to shine with the Jayhawks

Selden is 21, a baby in the context of the real world but a wizened veteran in college basketball circles. The guard is now midway through his third year at Kansas, or two more than anyone suspected he might stick around when he first enrolled.
