The Kansas Jayhawks are on their way to New Orleans for the Final Four after using a big second half to dispatch No. 1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels 80-67. The Jayhawks are playing some of the best basketball over the past few weeks, and are primed to win another national title.
Nick Fasulo of SB Nation's college basketball blog Searching For Billy Edelin talks about Kansas' win over North Carolina, and he praises the improvement of Jeff Withey who was not seen as a very good player prior to the season. Withey had three blocks in the regional final and was named Big 12 defensive player of the year.
Also, what is obvious but important to mention is that if North Carolina had Kendall Marshall in the lineup they more than likely would have beaten Kanas, but UNC did not have a player who could replace his production.
