Selection Sunday – Kansas (38)
Bid Status: 1-seed in South
We look at six factors in tournament teams, and Kansas is in great shape for a Final Four run in all but one. For the season they had the ninth best team according to Value Add (1 good factor), and they are getting even better (moved from 11th to 8th at www.kenpom.com down the stretch for second good factor). They have the three NBA players you need in Elijah Johnson, Ben McLemore and Jeff Withey (picture), which is the sixth best trio. The only problem is they may face a UNC team itheir second game that can match their talent, and a VCU team in the third that could rattle their guards.
|Rnk||Player/Team||Last Name||Class||Ft||In||Value Add||NBA?|

|16||Jeff||Withey||4 Sr||7||1||7.68||NBA C|
|20||Ben||McLemore||1 Fr||6||5||7.39||NBA SF|
