The Jayhawks are as fresh and good a country-rock outfit as there is right now. The four-man band, from Minneapolis, played before 30 or so people Thursday night at the Khyber Pass Pub in an hour-long set that crackled with smart songwriting and bristling, beautiful singing. Jayhawks songwriter and lead singer Mark Olson is often compared to the late Gram Parsons, underappreciated founder of country rock and leader of the International Submarine Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers.

Coach Roy Williams knew No. 6 Kansas was looking past Baylor, so he told his Jayhawks to snap out of it before tipoff. Williams told them again when the Bears scored the game's first 10 points, and again when his team was down by 25 at halftime. Kansas eventually got the message and rallied, but it wasn't enough as the Bears beat the Jayhawks, 85-77, last night for their first win over a Top 10 team in 11 years. "I don't know that I've ever been part of a more complete breakdown," Williams said.

Kansas couldn't erase the memory of last spring, but the Jayhawks did the next best thing. They beat Arizona for a small measure of revenge. "I feel a lot better with this being Arizona. Last year, they ripped our hearts out. It was a devastating loss. We watched the tape just to scout Arizona and it was difficult," Raef LaFrentz said after carrying the second-ranked Jayhawks to a tense, 90-87 victory over No. 4 Arizona last night in the Great Eight in Chicago, which features the final eight teams from last season's NCAA Tournament.

SAN ANTONIO - In an NCAA regional full of underdogs, Kansas played like the dominant No. 1 seed it is. Brady Morningstar scored 18 points and the Jayhawks defeated 12th-seeded Richmond, 77-57, last night get one win from returning to the Final Four for the first time since their 2008 championship. They will play 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth, a 72-71 overtime winner over 10th-seeded Florida State. The Southwest Regional is the first in NCAA history with three double-digit seeded teams.

A smiling Drew Gooden held up the sole of his blue and white basketball shoe for all to see. Amazingly, there was still tread remaining. "My dogs are hurtin'," the splendid 6-foot-10 forward from Kansas said. "That's why I've got my shoes off. It was a fun game, but it hurt my feet. " There was sweet irony in Kansas' 104-86 victory over Oregon yesterday in a highly entertaining Midwest Regional championship game that threatened to give the 16,310 spectators at the Kohl Center whiplash as they followed the furious action.

So much for that homecourt advantage. All week long, Kansas coach Roy Williams insisted that playing at Kemper Arena - only a 45-minute drive from the Jayhawks' campus - would be nowhere near the factor the media made it out to be. The man knew what he was talking about. No. 4 seed Virginia knocked off top-seeded Kansas in last night's Midwest Regional semifinal, 67-58. The Cavaliers, who last made it to the Final Eight in 1989, will play Arkansas tomorrow afternoon for a trip to the Final Four, which they haven't been to in 11 years.

Damion James scored 12 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the second half, and No. 11 Texas upset visiting Kansas, which is ranked third, 72-69, last night. James missed most of the first half with foul trouble, then provided the muscle the Longhorns (20-4, 7-2 Big 12) needed to counter the Jayhawks' size and strength under the basket. James finished with 14 points. Connor Atchely led Texas with 16 points and A.J. Abrams added 14 points. Darrell Arthur scored 22 to lead the Jayhawks (23-2, 8-2)

Two picture-perfect, one-handed lobs by Aaron Miles set up easy baskets by Christian Moody and J.R. Giddens, and all of a sudden there seemed little doubt that No. 3 Kansas would rally to beat Missouri. Giddens' bucket gave Kansas a nine-point lead - after trailing by eight at halftime. It got the crowd screaming and sent the host Jayhawks rolling to a 73-61 victory over their archrival last night. "I was sitting on the bench, but I was yelling my lungs out," said Wayne Simien, who had 22 points and eight rebounds.

Coming off Saturday's huge win over Connecticut, No. 3 Kansas was due for a letdown against Colorado. Sure enough, the Jayhawks started slowly against the visiting Buffaloes, committing 11 turnovers in the first half and leading by only four points at intermission. But following a stern halftime lecture by coach Roy Williams, Kansas took control and went on to a 99-77 victory last night. "I told them we were posting up like third-graders, not being very aggressive, walking down the court," Williams said.

Now that the warmups are over, No. 2 Kansas can go about the business of trying to reach the Final Four. The top-seeded Jayhawks and their two All-Americas, Paul Pierce and Raef LaFrentz, overpowered No. 16 seed Prairie View A&M, 110-52, in the first round of the NCAA Midwest Regional last night. Pierce scored 25 points and LaFrentz had 20 points and 15 rebounds. Prairie View (13-17) was the only team in the tournament with a losing record and had the lowest power rating of any team in tournament history.

"Except for (North) Carolina or Kansas, I don't think there's a team in this year's tournament that isn't worried about losing in the second round. As I told the kids, 'Is that going to kill us (if it happens again)?' No. If that's the worst it is, we can handle it. Now let's go try to win the whole thing.' " - Villanova coach Jay Wright on the Monday after Selection Sunday, when asked about all of the early exits by his Wildcats since they made it to the Final Four in 2009.

HOUSTON - To everyone else, this is Ryan Arcidiacono's team. But everyone on the team knows that they have two senior captains. And that this journey has belonged just as much to the other one. And Arch would be the first to set the record straight. Even if he's the guy getting way more of the media attention in the locker room. "That's cool with me," fourth-year center Daniel Ochefu said with a smile in front of his stall, where a lot fewer people were gathered. "You can't see him (through the crowd)

Before Villanova beat Kansas, it was fair to wonder if the Wildcats could dial up their game to the level needed to beat the nation's elite. Sure, they had looked impressive in plowing past UNC-Asheville, Iowa, and Miami, but Kansas represented another kind of beast that would require an increase in intensity and focus. It was like jumping from algebra to trigonometry. If you were good at the former, you should be able to conquer the latter, but it is going to take more effort. Jay Wright believed his team could do it and hoped the players had learned from the past.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - When you look at the impeccably dressed Jay Wright on the Villanova sideline, one word that doesn't enter into your list of descriptions is "ugly. " Yet Wright's players take absolute glee in describing their style of play as ugly. When things got tense Saturday night in the NCAA South Regional championship against No. 1 seed Kansas, the Wildcats turned up the ugly meter and propelled themselves to the Final Four in Houston. "If we buckled down on defense," junior swingman Josh Hart said after 'Nova's 64-59 victory over the Jayhawks at the KFC Yum!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The shots that were falling through the hoop so easily for Villanova during the first three games of the NCAA tournament kept falling off the rim Saturday night, but Ryan Arcidiacono stepped up with the South Regional final on the line and carried the Wildcats into the Final Four. Arcidiacono, the Cats' senior co-captain, sank four clutch free throws and tipped the ball away on a potential game-tying possession by Kansas with 4.6 seconds to play to send the Wildcats into their first Final Four since 2009 with a 64-59 victory over the top-seeded Jayhawks before 19,422 at the KFC Yum!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The Final Four, the grandest stage of college basketball, the platform upon which lasting programs and eternal memories are made, was so close for both Villanova and Kansas on Saturday night. Just one game away, then just one half away, then just minutes away. They played on and waited to see which shoulder fate would tap on this night. In the end, it wasn't pretty and it wasn't perfect. But it was Villanova. "I'm so proud of these guys," said Jay Wright, who was soaking wet from a locker room dousing by the team.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Perry Ellis couldn't miss a shot in the second half, Maryland couldn't grab a rebound, and as a result, Kansas will be the opponent for Villanova in Saturday's NCAA South Regional final. Ellis, a 6-foot-8 senior, made his first five shots of the second half and scored 27 points Thursday night to lift the top-seeded Jayhawks to a 79-63 victory over the Terrapins in the nightcap of the regional doubleheader at the KFC Yum!

Kansas keys After a midseason lull that saw them lose three of five games, the Jayhawks have won 16 straight and are the consensus favorite to go all the way. They shoot consistently well and get balanced scoring led by Perry Ellis, who had 21 points in each of Kansas' two NCAA victories last weekend over Austin Peay and Connecticut. The Jayhawks have dominated in rebounds; they battered UConn 44-24 on the boards and didn't allow a single second-chance point. Look for Kansas' Frank Mason III to get after it on defense against Melo Trimble, the main scoring threat of the Terrapins.

Dick Jerardi: Final Four cast, at least When I filled out out my bracket a week ago, I had Villanova going to the Final Four. I also had Miami and Maryland joining them Thursday in the South Regional in Louisville, Ky. I did not have Kansas. I had Connecticut upsetting the Jayhawks in the second round. That did not come close to happening. So, the South bracket, along with the West, is the strongest at this stage which, of course, makes the Wildcats' task much more complicated.
