In Scottrade Arena in St. Louis, Mo., the two teams from Kansas got a case of the blues. Both teams lost Sunday in the third round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
The second-seeded Kansas Jayhawks played their second game without injured starting center Joel Embiid. Then his replacement in the starting lineup, Tarik Black who scored a game-high of 18 points, missed the last five minutes of the game when he committed his fifth foul. Black played only one season for KU after transferring from Memphis.
Though Atlanta is this year’s host city for the NCAA’s Men’s Final Four, Kansas City still holds the record as the city with the most championship games. This year, the NCAA is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the men’s basketball tournament.
