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.

IT WAS PRETTY much assumed that once Temple finally got whole, things were going to get better. What wasn't known was by how much, and how quickly? Well, last night at the Wells Fargo Center, in the Owls' second game since transfer guards Jesse Morgan and Devin Coleman became eligible, we might have an early indication. In the kind of game that could keep on giving right up to Selection Sunday, the Owls (8-4) smoked 10th-ranked Kansas, 77-52, then joined their fans who stormed the court in celebration.

It was a thorough dissection of the No. 10 basketball team in the country and one that dramatically enhances Temple's NCAA resumé. Taking command from the beginning against one of college basketball's storied programs, Temple pounded Kansas, 77-52, Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. It was by far the signature win of the season for the Owls (8-4), whose fans stormed the court after the final buzzer. "Tonight it was just our night to shine and I am happy for our kids," said coach Fran Dunphy, who earned the sixth win over a top-10 team in his nine-year Temple career.

IF YOU TUNED OUT after Kansas was wiped out by Kentucky, 72-40, on Nov. 18 and assumed than any team, even Kansas, that had the Nos. 1 and 3 picks in the 2014 NBA draft was going to take a giant step backward, you made a mistake. KU has not lost since. The Jayhawks have played teams with combined records of 67-22. They have beaten Utah, Florida, Michigan State, Tennessee, Rhode Island and Georgetown (on the road). Bill Self's team is so deep he benched one player for the first half Saturday against Lafayette and started another who had scored 31 points in nine games.

MANY HISTORICAL events have happened in 3 days. The 1969 music festival Woodstock; Jonah's stint in the belly of a whale; and in 684 B.C., the usual 1-day Olympic Games were expanded to 3. Perhaps the past 3 days will go a long way in changing the culture of the 76ers organization. On Sunday, Kansas product Andrew Wiggins arrived in town. He was given a physical Monday and did some on-court work yesterday at the team's practice facility at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Steven Johnson is using part of his NFL salary to pay back his father for the chance he took six years ago. He wants to ensure that Steven Johnson Sr. is fully reimbursed for mortgaging his Upper Darby barbershop to send Johnson to college. "Still have about $80,000 left," Johnson said. "Slowly getting that to go down. " A Media native, Johnson is a linebacker and a core special-teams player for the Denver Broncos who took an unlikely path to Sunday's Super Bowl.

Scottie Wilbekin scored a career-high 18 points, Dorian Finney-Smith added 15 and No. 19 Florida (7-2) held on to beat No. 13 Kansas, 67-61, Tuesday night in Gainesville, Fla. The Gators bounced back from a buzzer-beater loss at No. 9 Connecticut last week and extended their home winning streak to 21 games. Wilbekin, who injured his right ankle against the Huskies eight days ago, made 7 of 12 shots and added six assists. Freshman Andrew Wiggins led the Jayhawks (6-3) with 26 points and 11 rebounds - his first double-double and both career highs.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - The overriding impression you get after watching Andrew Wiggins play for Kansas is: Man, that Selden kid is really good. Wayne Selden is Wiggins' classmate, teammate and, possibly, lottery-mate come June's NBA draft. But if the Sixers hold one of the top picks, unless they trade down or subscribe to some analytic that negates perfect size and otherworldly talent, Selden won't be bound for Philly or Orlando or any of the other self-sabotaged franchises eager for the No. 1 overall pick.
