Kansas guard Josh Jackson (11) drives against UC Davis guard Siler Schneider (5) during the first half on Friday, March 17, 2017 at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Sure, Kansas played a tad rusty after an eight-day layoff leading up to its NCAA Tournament opener. But the Jayhawks again looked the part of the No. 1 seed in the Midwest before halftime, with star freshman Josh Jackson back in the lineup. With KU’s dynamic four-guard backcourt of Jackson, Frank Mason III, Devonte’ Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk back intact, the Jayhawks drubbed the overmatched Aggies, 100-62, to move on to the tourney’s second round.
