Kansas assistant's 9-year-old son wrote an astonishingly detailed Duke scouting report

Kansas U.S. Rep Kevin Yoder had been working with the Nigerian consulate to obtain the visa for Azubuike's mother, as first reported by Rustin Dodd of The Athletic. "They cut it down to 10 years now", former KU center Kaun said of the 2017-18 Jayhawks, who are in the hunt for the 2018 NCAA title (in the same city as 2008) - an even 10 years after the school's last championship celebration.

This Kansas team isn't like the previous teams.

"It's not normal, I don't care what any coach says", said Mike Rhoades, head coach at VCU now and assistant coach for the Rams during that Final Four run.

VILLANOVA This year's Wildcats have a few players - including AP first-team All-American Jalen Brunson - who played in the 2016 title-game win against North Carolina. It's no secret, they're going to live and die by the 3 ball, and they haven't died yet. "I don't think his activity level during league play was quite as good as it was before, and I think there's reasons for that, but I think he's on a serious uptick right now". A third team got hot just as the madness began.

"Every team starts the season saying that's our goal to go to the Final Four".

Kansas will do what they've done all season against Villanova, and are hopeful they don't go cold at the wrong time.

White House may address spending bill, McMaster departure
That would include Aguilar's own bipartisan legislation, which he co-sponsored with Texas Republican Will Hurd in January. It does not address the DACA program , which provides protections for young undocumented immigrants.

By serendipity, I happened to be on the LUC campus to give the John F. Grant talk in bioethics at LUC when the team returned after making the Sweet 16. They're not very big so just like Villanova they struggle on the boards. They were thumped by Washington and Arizona State in games that revealed their many flaws.

While Stamper is not able to actually play with his team, that has not stopped him from being a full-time contributor.

"They're a really good team and we'll have to be well-prepared against them", Walz said. After disposing of Penn State 76-60 in the first round, the Jayhawks have won their next three games all by four points, including a 85-81 win over number two seed Duke in the Elite Eight. This matchup will be extremely close but the Wildcats will use the slight advantage they have on offense to seal the deal in the end.

The player to watch in this game has to be Malik Newman. The 6-3 senior is the only regular starter not averaging in double figures (7.0 ppg) but he scored a career-high 23 points on 7-for-10 shooting with six rebounds against the Wildcats.

In the game against Seton Hall, Graham finished the game with eight points and nine assists. But that game may have shown us why victory is in the Wolverines' destiny: After a pair of missed free throws that would have sealed the game for the Cougars, Jordan Poole hit an improbable buzzer beater to keep Michigan's season alive. Just playing for it is an honor. The Wildcats will try to advance into the finals when they face the Kansas Jayhawks in a battle between the two remaining No. 1 seeds in the tournament. Especially when they need to most. Bagley had probably one of his "worst" games of the season that night.

Both Notre Dame and OR were averaging more than 90 points scored per game in the tournament coming in, which means Monday's contest qualified as a defensive battle between the two squads.
