Holy Jayhawk, Batman! No. 1 Kansas Goes Down

Not only were the Jayhawks a #1 seed, they were the overall top seed in the dance and the #1 team in the country. Ali Farokhmanesh scored 16 points to help lead the 9th seeded Northern Iowa Panthers, of the Missouri Valley Conference, past the Jayhawks 69-67. It's the first time since 2000 that Kansas has lost a second round game in the NCAA tournament and the first time the Missouri Valley has had a team in the Sweet 16 in more than three decades.
