No.1 If the NCAA tournament began today, would Kansas be the top overall seed?

Kansas (13-1, 2-0 Big 12) cemented its place as the current No.1 by outlasting No.2 Oklahoma (12-1, 1-1) in Monday night’s triple overtime thriller 109-106. The game of the year lived up to the hype and has us salivating for the rematch in Norman on Feb. 13.

Kansas withstood a career-high 46 points from Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield in 54 minutes. With Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine sidelined due to injury, Hield might be the new frontrunner for national player of the year.
