March Madness: Underdog Stanford wins over number-two Kansas

The low-seeded Ivy League school took down the legacy team Kansas in a game capped by a last-minute finish. Down three points, Kansas had a chance to tie the contest with seconds left, but a deep attempt from Connor Frankamp dinged the front rim and the buzzer sounded.

The shocking win now vaults Stanford into the Sweet Sixteen where they’ll be matched up against 11-seeded Dayton on Thursday.

Kansas star Andrew Wiggins looked like a shell of his sharp-shooting self; Wiggins was held to just four points, going one-for-six from the field. Tarik Black led the Jayhawks with 18 points and five rebounds.

Undoubtedly, the Stanford forwards came up big against Kansas’s tough defense. Anthony Brown finished with 10 points and five boards, and Dwight Powell notched 15 points and seven rebounds.

Stanford guard Chasson Randle also shifted into the next gear against the Jayhawks, as he penetrated the D to score 13 points on 50% shooting.

As impressive as Stanford’s offense was, Kansas simply couldn’t buy a bucket. They shot a miserable 32% in the game, while Stanford reached 44%.
