Kansas Jayhawks (1) vs. Austin Peay Governors (16)
The Jayhawks have won 12 consecutive conference titles, and are among the most efficient teams at both ends of the court. The Governors had a ho-hum regular season, but finished on a hot streak, having won six in a row. They’ll need to step up if they wish to reprise their Cinderella story on the biggest stage — especially after double-digit losses to both Vanderbilt and Indiana during the regular season.
OUR PICK: Kansas
