Kansas upsets South Carolina, advances to Sweet 16

The Kansas Jayhawks will be making a second consecutive trip to the Sweet 16 after their 75-69 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks tonight, joining the men's team which did so by beating the North Carolina Tar Heels.

I can't even begin to enumerate the reasons that I didn't expect #12 Kansas to upset #5 South Carolina, but we can start by returning - once again - to the fact that most people considered them the 64th team to get a bid in the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
