Stanford Slays Kansas, Kentucky Stuns Shockers – TIME

Stanford v Kansas

Yet another upset in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament as the 10th-seeded Stanford Cardinals defeated the second-seeded Kansas Jayhawks 60-57. They’ll make their first trip to the Sweet 16 in five years to face another Cinderella story, 11th-seeded Dayton

The madness never ends: 10th-seeded Stanford upset second seed Kansas 60-57 while Kentucky took down the first-seed Wichita State Shockers on Sunday.

Stanford beat seventh-seeded New Mexico on Friday in order to play the Jayhawks Sunday. Dwight Powell scored 15 points to put the Cardinals ahead of powerhouse Kansas. Even though superstar Andrew Wiggins played 24 minutes for Kansas, he had only four points on 1-for-6 shooting.

Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison (20 points) led the Wildcats to their shocking 78-76 win over the previously unbeaten Shockers. Their win advances the team to the Sweet 16, where they’ll play the defending champs, Louisville. Louisville dispatched the St. Louis Billikens 66-51 Saturday.

Stanford will head to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2008, where they will play 11th-seeded Dayton, who took an improbable trip to the Sweet 16 themselves. The Flyers upset sixth-seeded Ohio State in the first round of the tournament before upsetting third-seeded Syracuse on Saturday.
