NCAA Bracket Update: Kansas Crushes Richmond 77-57, Awaits Winner of VCU Vs. Florida State in Elite Eight

The Kansas Jayhawks looked every bit a potential NCAA tournament champion this evening, dominating the No. 12 seed Richmond Spiders 77-57. The Jayhawks were never truly threatened on their way to the&nb;20-point blowout victory, while Richmond's banner season is finally over.

The No. 1 seed Jayhawks received contributions from multiple players, including a game high 14 rebounds and 12 points from forward Thomas Robinson. Brady Morningstar scored 18 points on four of seven shooting from three, and Marcus Morris added 13 points and eight rebounds.

Richmond was led in defeat by Justin Harper (22 points and nine rebounds) and Kevin Anderson (13 points, five rebounds and three assists). The normally efficient Spiders made just four of 26 three point field goals.

Kansas shot 48 percent from the floor (30 of 62) and 47 percent from three (nine of 19). Kansas out-Richmond'd the Spiders, with 22 assists on those 30 made field goals, against just nine turnovers.

Bill Self's team awaits the winner of VCU vs. Florida State, with the winner advancing to the Final Four.
