Five key questions for Kansas entering postseason play |
Five key questions for the Kansas men’s basketball team entering the 2017 postseason, which begins next week in a to-be-determined location and ends whenever a team does to Kansas what only four squads were able to do all season or the Jayhawks cut down the nets in Arizona.

Kansas’ women’s golf team was 11th among 13 teams after two rounds of the Suntrust Gator Women’s Invitational on Saturday in Gainesville, Fla.

Jayhawks place at NCAA Indoor |

Malik Newman making the most of his transfer season | Call it a Nightengale |
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Newman, who is sitting out the season because of NCAA transfer rules, has played well on the scout team in practices. That's given confidence to his teammates and coaches that he will be ready for a big role next year.

Jayhawk players don’t profess to be experts on NCAA Tournament seeding
“I have no idea about any of that,” said Graham, Kansas’ junior guard from Raleigh, N.C., whenasked if he felt the Jayhawks (28-4) would be awarded a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament even though they lost to TCU 85-82 in a Big 12 Tournament quarterfinal game on Thursday at the Sprint Center.

Duke makes ACC history and a case for NCAA seeding that's sure to be debated -
Duke, seeded fifth, became the first team in conference history to win four games in four days and take the league title. The Blue Devils conquered with a 75-69 victory against third-seeded Notre Dame on Saturday night. The Blue Devils rallied for the third time in as many days to overcome a ranked team in the second half and win their 20th conference tournament crown.

Bracketology: Duke now projects to be first eight-loss team to earn a No. 1 seed -
As Selection Sundays go, this one could be relatively quiet. There are no potential bid-stealers in any of the conference championship games. Teams will be playing for seed, not selection. The 1-seeds are set, although you could still see some movement down the bracket.

Bracketology Bubble Watch: Vanderbilt has to make history, Nevada earns auto bid -
Well, a 15-loss team has never earned an at-large spot in the NCAA Tournament, and Vanderbilt was hoping to avoid that scenario by winning the SEC Tournament and taking the automatic bid. But it wasn’t to be. Too bad Vanderbilt wasn’t playing Florida again because the Commodores certainly did not look good against Arkansas in the SEC tourney semifinals on Saturday.

Adrian Peterson scheduled to meet with Seahawks in his first visit of free agency -
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that Peterson is scheduled to meet with the Seahawks this week in what will be his first visit with any team during the current free agency period.
