Considering how badly my predictions have gone this tournament I will claim no wins, but watching Kansas get out-everythinged by Virginia Commonwealth I can actually say I saw coming. Kansas totally deserved to lose.
No. 11 Virginia Commonwealth 71
No. 1 Kansas 61
No top seeds remain. Show of hands who had VCU playing Butler in the national semifinal? I think one of my brackets did ... somewhere.
I'm sure CBS execs are thrilled about this, let alone one of those teams playing in the finals.
This may be one of the worse losses in KU tourney history. This bracket was set up for the Jayhawks to win, and they blew it against a team that is one of the most remarkable runs in tourney history.
VCU was one of the "last four in" teams. And all the Rams do is beat up the power conference schools.
VCU is the first 11 seed to make the Final Four since?
2006 and George Mason, which like VCU is out of the Colonial Athletic Association.
Kansas lost because of brutal shooting (35.5%) and the inability to defend the 3-point line, VCU was 12-of-25 from 3.
Kansas was also 15-of-28 from the foul line.
