March Madness 2023: Arkansas Knocks Out Reigning Champs, Kansas

The March Madness madness continues as the mighty Kansas, the top seed in the West Region and reigning champs, were surprisingly upset by the razor-sharp No. 8 seed Arkansas. Joining the unfortunate Purdue, another top seed who also made a shockingly early exit from the NCAA tournament, Kansas' journey in the Big Dance ends sooner than expected. The underdogs have proven once again that anything can happen in March.

With Kansas taking a loss, we can now safely say that the Sweet 16 will be missing not one, but two No. 1 seeds for the first time since the 2018 NCAA Tournament. And if that wasn't enough, Purdue was sent packing in the first round by none other than the No. 16 seed, Fairleigh Dickinson.

Arkansas trails, but Ricky Council IV's five free throws in the final 30 seconds seals their victory! Davonte Davis leads Razorbacks to Sweet 16 with clutch win over KU. Arkansas under Coach Eric Musselman stuns No. 1 seeds two years in a row, beats Kansas in NCAA Tournament.
