Eastern Washington — the No. 14 seed in the West Region — won the Big Sky Tournament, holding foes to a 37.8% shooting performance in three games. And the Eagles are a fast-tempo five better known for their offensive prowess. EWU heads into its first NCAA Tournament since 2015 averaging a robust 78.0 points per game.

The Eagles are 13-1 since Jan. 23. Ten of those wins have been by double-digit margins.

The third-seeded Jayhawks went 12-6 to place second in the Big 12. Kansas struggled in January, going 3-5 over eight games. But the Jayhawks have rallied: they are 9-2 since.

Kansas has been especially sharp on defense in its recent 11-game run. Over that span, the Jayhawks have averaged 61.9 points per game while holding foes to a 38.3% mark from the field. F David McCormack has also been a force during the surge. Since Jan. 28, McCormack has shot 56.9% from the floor while averaging 15.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. However, the 6-foot-10 junior missed the Big 12 tournament due to COVID-19 protocols (Kansas was knocked out of the event with a positive test). His status is key to a prospective run in these brackets.
