NEW ORLEANS - Saturday night's second national semifinal at the Superdome looked very much like the first one, with the favorite taking a significant lead and the underdog looking as if it might never score. Both games changed dramatically in the second half, going from double-digit leads to ties. Kansas, however, was not Louisville. The Jayhawks came from way back and just kept coming, refusing to be deterred by playing from behind all night. Beyond the brilliant play of their star, Thomas Robinson, the Jayhawks (32-6)

WASHINGTON - Rick Santorum won the Kansas caucuses in a rout Saturday, and Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney countered in Wyoming, a weekend prelude to suddenly pivotal Southern primary showdowns in the week ahead. "Things have an amazing way of working out," Santorum told supporters in Missouri, where he traced his campaign through a series of highs and lows. He called his showing in Kansas a "comfortable win" that would give him the vast majority of the 40 delegates at stake.

To fully appreciate the dominance of Kansas point guard Jacque Vaughn in yesterday's 76-51 win over Santa Clara, don't bother looking at his line in the box score. Look instead at the statistics of his counterpart, Steve Nash. Nash, who had 28 points in a first-round win over Maryland, missed his first eight shots and finished with seven points on 1-for-11 shooting as second-seeded Kansas (28-4) opened a 12-0 lead and never was threatened by the 10th-seeded Broncos (20-9).

"Kansas" put me in mind of the "Mad Magazine" parody of the old TV series "The Fugitive," titled, predictably enough, "The Phewgitive. " Richard Kimble pauses from his flight from the law (and his search for the one-armed man) in some small town, and everywhere he goes, there's a "Wanted" poster for Richard Kimble on the wall showing Kimble with exactly the same clothing and exactly the same facial expression as he has at that moment. Yet nobody recognizes him. In "Kansas," Matt Dillon and Andrew McCarthy play Doyle Kennedy and Wade Corey, two guys who rob a bank in a small town.

The preseason No. 1 nearly toppled the current team in that spot. Top-ranked Kansas, slowed by Cincinnati's attacking defense for a half, rallied from a 16-point deficit last night and used the play of Paul Pierce to beat the fourth-ranked Bearcats, 72-65, last night in the Great Eight at Chicago's United Center. "They intimidated us in the first half. The way we played in the first half we were soft and I don't think we're a soft team," Kansas coach Roy Williams said. Pierce scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half and Kansas (6-0)

It didn't look like Kansas until the second half of the second game at New York's Madison Square Garden. Then the Jayhawks, especially their preseason All-Americas Paul Pierce and Raef LaFrentz, lived up to their No. 2 ranking. Those two took over in the second half last night and led Kansas to a 73-58 victory over Florida State in the championship game of the Preseason NIT. LaFrentz and Pierce were each held to two points in the first half as the Jayhawks (6-0) trailed, 28-20, at halftime.

TOP-SEEDED Kansas was on the ropes, turning the ball over about as often as it was putting up shots, and had allowed North Carolina to build a comfortable lead by halftime. Bill Self followed his team into the locker room and, undoubtedly, delivered quite a message, even though his answer dripped with sarcasm when he was asked later to describe it. "I told them, 'Hey, just keep doing what we're doing, we'll be fine,' " Self said with a grin. The Jayhawks were fine indeed, but only because they flipped the script.

TCU PICKED an amazing time to pick up its first conference of in its first season in the Big 12. Garlon Green scored 20 points and the Horned Frogs held on for a 62-55 upset of fifth-ranked Kansas on Wednesday night in Fort Worth, Texas. The Jayhawks (19-3, 7-2 Big 12), coming off a loss 4 days earlier against Oklahoma State, have their first losing streak in more than 7 years. They had played 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses, the longest active streak in NCAA Division I. TCU (10-12, 1-8)

Scotty Hopson had 17 points to lead No. 16 Tennessee - with a lineup thinned by suspensions, dismissals and injuries - to a 76-68 upset of top-ranked Kansas in Knoxville, Tenn., last night. "It's pretty amazing what chemistry can do when guys put their minds to something and know their backs are up against the wall a little bit and they rally, and they don't quit and they believe in themselves," Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said. Kansas' loss leaves No. 2 Texas and No. 3 Kentucky as the only unbeatens in Division I, and it was the fourth this weekend by a Top Ten team, joining No. 4 Purdue, No. 5 Duke, and No. 8 West Virginia.

Sherron Collins had career-high 33 points and made nearly every key play down the stretch, helping top-ranked Kansas pull out a 71-66 win over Cornell last night in Lawrence, Kan. Kansas (14-0) overcame a rare off night from the field - 36 percent - and shoddy defense in the first half, making just enough plays down the stretch in one of the toughest victories during its 51-game home winning streak. Cornell (12-3), the two-time Ivy League champion, got 24 points from Ryan Wittman, his shooting keeping Cornell in front well into the second half.

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. – 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!

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - On the narrowing ladder of the NCAA tournament, Villanova reaches for a very high rung Saturday night in an Elite Eight matchup against the Kansas Jayhawks, who merely happen to be the top-ranked men's basketball team in the country. The Wildcats have climbed this far with three tournament wins, one more impressive than the next. Their Thursday dismissal of Miami in the regional semifinal by a score of 92-69 was another thunder-and-lightning mix of rumbling defense and electric offense.

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.

So what in the name of James Naismith is going on in college basketball? Three teams that you can normally rely on for consistent excellence - Duke, Michigan State, and Kansas - have struggled the last two weeks. Group the teams together, and their combined record for their last three games is 1-8. The Blue Devils and the Spartans enter Saturday's play riding three-game losing streaks, with each team losing a pair of games at home during that run. Kansas won its only home game of the last three but lost by double digits at both West Virginia and Oklahoma State.

NEW YORK - Ned Yost started picking up on Kansas City's subtle shift in civic pride a year ago, after the most crushing loss as a major-league manager, and every time the sight would warm his heart. The Royals had left the World Series-tying run at third base in Game 7 last year, the kind of loss that can torment a team and its fans for generations. Yet on his daily drives to the supermarket or to Kauffman Stadium, Yost began noticing something new and thrilling: Every kid he passed wore the club's signature blue cap. For a franchise that hadn't won a World Series since 1985, for a town that hasn't seen its NFL team in a Super Bowl in close to 46 years, that playoff run turned the Royals into the princes of Kansas City.
