    There’s no room for a surprise team at this Final Four. Duke, North Carolina, Kansas and Villanova have combined for 17 national championships. Each of the schools has won at least three titles, making this the first Final Four in which each of the teams already had won multiple championships. The closest thing to a Final Four party crasher is North Carolina, which was seeded eighth in the South Region but has won 10 of its last 11 games. Those aren’t the only impressive numbers involving the four tradition-rich programs remaining in the NCAA Tournament. Here are a few things to know about each of the teams in the Final Four: DUKE COACH K’s FINALE: Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is making his 13th Final Four appearance to move into sole possession of first place (former UCLA coach John Wooden also had 12). Krzyzewski also has made more NCAA Tournament appearances (36) and won more NCAA Tournament games (101) than any other coach. ON THE MARK: Mark Williams has blocked 16 shots in Duke’s first games, which matches the most...
    WACO, Texas (AP) — NaLyssa Smith scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, and fifth-ranked Baylor remained tied for the Big 12 lead with an 85-77 victory over Kansas on Saturday. Smith only had one assist, but that came on Ja’Mee Asberry’s 3-pointer midway through the third quarter that finally put Baylor ahead to stay. It was Smith’s 19th double-double this season. Asberry finished with 19 points while Queen Egbo had 14 points and nine rebounds. With two conference games remaining, the Bears (23-5, 13-3) can guarantee at least a share of their 12th consecutive Big 12 title with a win at No. 9 Iowa State (24-4, 13-3) on Monday night. Baylor lost its first two Big 12 games for first-year coach Nicki Collen, but it has won 13 of 14 since. The Bears have an eight-game winning streak. Ioanna Chatzileonti scored 21 points and Zakiyah Franklin had 17 for Kansas (19-7, 10-6), which had won seven in a row before consecutive losses this week to the Big 12 co-leaders. The Jayhawks lost 85-59 at...
    A look at the upcoming weekend around the Big 12 Conference: GAME OF THE WEEKEND The Big 12’s best team this season meets the league’s best — and the nation’s best, for that matter — from last season when No. 5 Kansas heads to No. 10 Baylor on Saturday night. The Jayhawks (23-4, 12-2) can essentially put away the Bears (23-5, 11-4) in the race for the regular-season title with a season sweep of the defending national champions. Kansas has won four straight following a nip-and-tuck loss to Texas, while the Bears have won four of their past five since their loss in Lawrence with the only blemish against No. 11 Texas Tech. “You know, every test is opportunity for us; we are getting better. We’ve progressed throughout the year,” Jayhawks forward Jalen Wilson said,. “We continue to get better, so I think there’s a whole lot of opportunity.” LOOKING AHEAD Speaking of the Red Raiders (22-6, 11-4), they have a tough game against TCU on Saturday night as they try to keep their hopes alive of...

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The first driver in NASCAR’s championship four is the one everyone else was already expecting to race for the Cup title in the season finale. Kyle Larson wasn’t going to be so sure, even with all of those wins and his significant points lead, until it was a certainty. “You know, (Kevin) Harvick had his issues last year and didn’t make the final four,” Larson said. “That will always be on my mind.” No such issues for Larson, who opened the round of eight in the playoffs Sunday with a dominating victory at Texas. It was the first opportunity for anyone to lock into one of the championship-contending spots. There are now two races left, and seven drivers vying for the remaining three spots, before the season finale Nov. 7 in Phoenix. Ryan Blaney, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch are above the cutline going next weekend to Kansas, where Busch won earlier this year. Defending Cup champion Chase Elliott is fifth, ahead of Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr. and Joey Logano. “I’ll...

    Patrick Mahomes is the perfect quarterback. But Tom Brady can end all talk of him becoming the greatest of all time. With six rings that accolade firmly belongs to Brady, whose Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Super Bowl LV. For Mahomes - and any quarterback – the legacy of Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jnr looms large. He was six when Brady led the New England Patriots to their first title 19 years ago. But if the Chiefs win, Mahomes, 25, will be the youngest quarterback to win two Super Bowls - and the first since Brady in 2005 to go back-to-back. Patrick Mahomes is the perfect quarterback, but he comes up against a legend in Tom Brady Mahomes is 44-9 as starter, including the playoffs. He is magnificent. A dual threat quarterback without a weakness: a leader, an innovator, and one of only 13 men to win a regular season and Super Bowl MVP. His achievements are equally impressive off the field. He speaks out about social injustice and police brutality and...

    (CNN)The last time Kansas sent a Democrat to the US Senate, the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby was all over the news. "Tarzan the Ape Man" was a hit movie. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt won his first term, crushing incumbent Herbert Hoover.The year, as you history majors out there have probably already figured out, was 1932.That was 88 years ago. And proving that nothing lasts forever, Republican dominance of Kansas' two Senate seats is in real jeopardy of coming to an end in 33 days' time. And while Republican Rep. Roger Marshall is still favored to beat state Sen. Barbara Bollier (D) on November 3, the fact that the race is even marginally competitive speaks to how much the state has changed in just the last four years under President Donald Trump.In 2016, President Donald Trump won Kansas by 21 points, a margin very similar to the 22-point win that Mitt Romney ran up in the Sunflower State four years earlier. (The last Democrat to win Kansas at the presidential level was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.) But the state --...
    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republicans brimmed with newfound confidence Wednesday about keeping an open Senate seat in Kansas after establishment-backed Rep. Roger Marshall won the party’s nomination, advancing to face an unusually formidable Democrat in a tough year for the GOP. Marshall’s first tasks were quickly refilling his campaign treasury and rebuilding Republican unity after an often-bitter primary campaign. But he and other Republicans immediately previewed the fall campaign in which they are expected to use the threat of Democrats capturing a Senate majority to try and blunt blunt Barbara Bollier’s efforts to woo GOP-leaning independent voters and moderate Republicans. Republicans are trying to keep their 53-47 Senate majority with competitive races in other states such as Arizona, Colorado and Maine and the coronavirus pandemic causing President Donald Trump’s standing with voters to slide. GOP leaders had feared that the Kansas seat would be in play if lightning-rod conservative Kris Kobach won the nomination after losing the 2018 Kansas governor’s race. But Marshall prevailed comfortably and won 85 of the state’s 105 counties, including four of its five most...
