Kansas (32-4, 15-3) finished the regular season at #1 in the AP Poll. The Jayhawks knocked off Austin Peay and UConn to make the Sweet 16.

Maryland (27-8, 12-6) finished the season at #18 in the AP Poll. The Terrapins beat South Dakota State and Hawaii to get their bid to the Sweet 16.

This is the fifth meeting all-time between Kansas and Maryland.  The Jayhawks have a 3-2 series lead.  The most recent meeting came in the 2002 Final Four, when the Juan Dixon led Terps knocked out Kirk Hinrich and the Jayhawks by a 97-88 score.

The Terrapins are coached by Mark Turgeon, who is 114-58 in five seasons at Maryland.  Turgeon is 364-217 in 17 seasons overall that includes stops at Jacksonville State, Wichita State, and Texas A&M.

A matchup against either Villanova or Miami FL in the Elite 8 awaits the victor.
