NCAA women's tournament: OR knocks off No. 3-seeded Maryland

The top-seeded Jayhawks have rolled into the Elite Eight, winning their first three games by an average of 30 points. Purdue has been playing exceptionally well, but with the roll Jackson has been on lately, I have to give the edge to Kansas in this one. Backside five to VCU. OR will face the Sunday victor between Kentucky and North Carolina next week in Arizona in the Final Four. But for Kansas, this is still a win-or-else.

Altman had never been to the Final Four in 13 appearances in the NCAA Tournament. "He was awesome the first half", said Vick of Mason who scored 17 first-half points and finished with 21 while playing all 40 minutes. You can recruit pretty good players to the University of Oregon.

The Jayhawks tried to turn up the heat early in the second, to no avail.

Kansas: Bill Self is one of the most revered coaches in the industry.

The Jayhawks have not faced a defense as quick or as athletic in the backcourt as the Ducks. Maryland committed 21 turnovers (They committed 19 total in the first two rounds) and didn't make a three-point field goal. Unlike Purdue, which featured bigger, slower posts, the Ducks can keep up with Kansas' admittedly stellar guards.

OR led for almost 24 minutes but never put the Wolverines away.

And let's not forget that Kansas' defense has not exactly been the most consistent force this season.

"The seven years we've been at OR, we've had great guys to work with", Altman said, "but I also feel good for all the other players, the ex-players, who have built OR basketball".

Very bad shooting, poor rebounding, and a terrible offensive game plan by Kansas saw the Oregon Ducks absolutely embarrass the Jayhawks in their own backyard in Kansas City. "I'm disappointed more for them than I am for me".

Counties lose population in latest US Census estimate
Job growth dropped off in the fall, leading Harvey to worry low unemployment was stifling the region's ability to grow. The majority of counties in IL saw declines, and overall population dropped by more than 37,500 from 2015 to 2016.

No. 3 OR and No. 1 Kansas are set to tip-off at 8:49 p.m. ET on Saturday night.

Instead, the few tickets Maryland fans had they may want to resell to OR fans.

Here's why the Duck will do just that.

But the torrid shooting of Brooks, Ennis and Dorsey quickly deflated the sold-out Sprint Center, and sent a warning shot to the Jayhawks that they were in for a fight.

This may be his best, too - better even than his 2008 national title team.

Tyler Dorsey also continued his hot tournament with 27 points, and Pac-12 Player of the Year Dillon Brooks finished with 17 to pace OR offensively. Bell set the tone on the game's opening possession with a block on the Jayhawks' Josh Jackson, and from there it seemed like Kansas was rarely comfortable bringing the ball in the paint because of it.

"I think it's all in the attitude", Graves said. For KU basketball fans, this is as clear as the path can get. But Kansas might be getting better. "But my legacy is going to be about other things, at least as far as I'm concerned".

Especially when that junior has already hit two buzzer-beating game-winners this year.
