Colorado nearly opened the door for No. 2 Villanova to become No. 1. Not quite, though. Marcus Morris scored six of his 15 points in overtime and grabbed a key rebound that helped top-ranked Kansas avoid what would have been the season's biggest upset with a 72-66 road victory over the Buffaloes last night. Cole Aldrich recorded his fourth straight double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds and he blocked five shots to help the Jayhawks (21-1, 7-0 Big 12) beat the Buffaloes (11-11, 2-6)

OKLAHOMA CITY - Ali Farokhmanesh stood behind the three-point line with the basketball and Kansas' dream season in his hands. Two rows up, Cindy Fredrick yelled at her son to shoot the basketball. There were 35 seconds left, 30 on the shot clock, and Farokhmanesh's Northern Iowa team was up one. It was a split-second decision that will rock the NCAA tournament. "I always want him to shoot it," she said. "Always. His dad yells the same thing, but he's Iranian, so you can't always understand it. " She laughed, because that's what you do after your son swished the biggest shot of the tournament.

Talk about an eerie coincidence. Kansas, the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, is facing nearly the exact circumstance as one of the most embarrassing losses in the storied program's history. When the top-ranked Jayhawks (32-2) open the tournament tonight against Lehigh, it will look and feel a whole lot like 2005 - when they lost to Bucknell in the first round. In the same arena, Oklahoma City's Ford Center. Against the Patriot League champion. In a season where they started as the No. 1 team.

A freight train came through town last night, right up North Broad Street, accompanied by maybe the loudest rendition of "Rock Chalk, Jayhawk" ever heard in Philly. The Kansas Jayhawks showed up at the sold-out Liacouras Center undefeated but with the slightest question attached to their No. 1 ranking. This game provided an exclamation point. The Kansas chant got going with time still remaining in the 84-52 demolition of the 18th-ranked Owls. "Today, for the first time, it really didn't matter who was out there," Kansas coach Bill Self said about his own team.
