Nebraska. Basketball state. For the first time in 23 years, we have two teams in the NCAA tournament. That’s two more than Indiana and Illinois. One more than Florida, Georgia and Louisiana.

1. Kansas (Wichita State, KU and K-State): The Shockers and Wildcats could meet in the round of 32. But it’s KU that Wichita State really wants to play. That’ll have to wait until the national championship game.
