2014-15 — With the disappointment of an early exit in 2014 still lingering, junior Perry Ellis (13.8 ppg) and sophomores Frank Mason (12.6 ppg) and Wayne Selden (9.4 ppg) led Kansas to a No. 2 seed and second-round match-up with surging Wichita State, which reached the Final Four in 2013 and saw an undefeated season go down in 2014 with a second-round tourney loss to Kentucky. For years, people had been clamoring for a KU-WSU match-up. There was no avoiding it when the bracket came out, and after WSU knocked off Indiana in the first round, the stage was set for a second-round showdown in Omaha. With Ellis dealing with an injury, Ron Baker and Fred VanVleet proved to be too much for the Jayhawks, who fell, 78-65, and ended the season at 27-9.
