“The road ends here,” the Final Four slogan goes. Those four words plastered all over the River Walk and surrounding areas, including The Alamodome, site of the NCAA Tournament semifinals, proved true for Kansas on Saturday night. After leading the Jayhawks to the program’s 14th consecutive Big 12 regular-season title, a conference tournament crown and KU’s first Final Four berth since 2012, a momentous run concluded two days ahead of college basketball’s ultimate destination, with a 95-79 loss to Villanova.
