2010-11 — With one of its most veteran squads since the 2008 national title, Kansas, enjoyed a 32-2 regular season with the only losses coming at home vs. Texas and at Kansas State. The Jayhawks entered the NCAA Tournament with a No. 1 seed. As if that weren’t enough, KU’s Southwest regional blew wide open early on paving a favorable road to the Final Four. Seeds 2-8 lost in the first or second round and KU rolled into the Elite Eight, where it faced 11th-seeded VCU and up-and-coming coach Shaka Smart. The Jayhawks, led by the Morris twins (Marcus 17.2 ppg and Markieff 13.6 ppg), never got going offensively and shot poorly from the outside in the regional final in San Antonio and were knocked out by VCU, 71-61. Kansas ended the season with a 35-3 record.
