We Know What Day Kansas' Sweet 16 Game Is

The city's economy is expected to gain $10 million during the NCAA tournament but Wichita's time in the spotlight will have much longer-lasting economic effects

The Jayhawks had been in position to cover for most of the final few minutes until Seton Hall hit a number of three-pointers.

On Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 83-79 win over Seton Hall but it wasn't all smiles for everyone who had money riding on the game. The game was played about 2 hours south of the Jayhawks' campus in Lawrence, and about 90 percent of the 15,000-plus at Intrust Bank Arena cheered on the home-state school. Newman found enough of an opening to zip him a pass and Mykhailiuk buried the shot from which Seton Hall couldn't recover, giving Kansas a 71-63 lead with 1:20 left. Malik Newman scored 28 points, continuing his torrid pace from the Big 12 Tournament, when he was also Kansas' best player in a late-season run.

Azubuike finished 4 of 5 from the floor, and although some foul trouble meant he spent stretches of the second half on the bench, KU advanced thanks to his presence. Defensively, Seton Hall yields 73.3 points per game against the opposing teams. The 7-foot, 280-pound sophomore played 22 minutes, including some tough defense on his bruising counterpart, rendering Seton Hall's star far less effective than when Mitch Lightfoot and Silvio De Sousa were trying to guard him.

Audi to launch Tesla rivalling e-tron GT
That means that while Audi Sport's e-tron GT might share the Mission E platform, it could use different drivetrain components. With more than 20 new launches in 2018, Audi plans to manage what it's calling the "biggest model initiative in its history".

Seconds later, the ball was back in Mykhailiuk's hands on the perimeter, and he went straight into attack-mode, driving the ball downhill toward the paint. When Seton Hall turned it over, KU got exactly the types of boosts it needed. They edged by in the first round before falling short against Kansas.

Coming into the tournament, the Pirates held a 21-11 record.

The victor of the KU-Seton Hall game advances to the regional semifinal (Sweet 16) next Friday (March 23) in Omaha, Neb.
