Conference tournament enthusiasts Iowa State did it again in 2019, taking down Kansas 78-66 in a game that largely lacked drama at the Sprint Center.

This cements just the second year in Bill Self's tenure at Kansas in which the Jayhawks will lose ten games (unless KU were to win a national title). The Jayhawks head into Selection Sunday sitting at 25-9, after finishing 12-6 in Big 12 play. Bracket Matrix had KU as the highest 4 seed coming into today, so there's a good chance they will be considered for a 3 seed, but a win today would have meant tying Virginia for the most quadrant 1 wins in the country. Kansas' main hopes for the Big Dance will be geographical in nature: going to Tulsa or Des Moines for the opening weekend, and being in the Midwest regional bracket.
