Not a 1 seed in sight for your Sunday brunch, but go Shockers!

Well, if we’re going to root for a Kansas team, the choice is clear here.

Once again, the early slate for the men is a light two-game snack, with a couple of two-seeds trying to survive the second round.

It is the latter game, of course, with which we are most concerned. Having been unceremoniously dispatched from NCAA Tournament relevance ourselves, we may as well go all-in on our little brothers. Wichita State gets that rematch with Kentucky that they’ve hoped for, and we’ll remind you that last time they met in the tournament, we were rooting for the Shockers to avenge US.

There are no 1-seeds in today’s early women’s action, either. It’s all chalk coming in, which means the chances of it being all chalk going out are a lot smaller. Could be some bracket upheaval today.
