KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) No. 4 seed Purdue (27-4) vs. No. 1 Kansas (30-4)
Third round, Midwest region; Kansas City, Missouri; 9:39 p.m. EDT.
BOTTOM LINE: Kansas ran roughshod through UC Davis and Michigan State to reach the Sweet 16, which will be played about 40 miles from its campus in Lawrence. These Jayhawks are a departure from coach Bill Self's typical teams in that they use a four-guard lineup, led by standout Frank Mason III and star freshman Josh Jackson. Purdue will counter with a whole lot of size, led by 6-foot-9, 250-pound sophomore Caleb Swanigan and 7-footer Isaac Haas. The Boilermakers had a first-round tussle with Vermont before fending off another Big 12 foe, Iowa State, to reach the regional semifinals.
