Where: They will open play against Eastern Kentucky in St. Louis on Friday.
Why: KU finished the regular season with a 14-4 record in the Big 12, winning the league’s regular season title for the 10th straight year. The Jayhawks posted notable victories over Duke, Oklahoma (twice), Iowa State (twice), Texas and Kansas State. Kansas could have received a higher seed had the Jayhawks not lost freshman star Joel Embiid to a back injury for the Big 12 Tournament and the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
Ceiling: Kansas, led by freshman Andrew Wiggins, has the talent to make serious noise this March. If Embiid returns and is as effective as he was during the regular season, KU could be a favorite to win it all. If not, the Jayhawks will struggle.
