All things ended well for the Kansas Jayhawks and their head coach Bill Self in the round of 32 against North Carolina but late in the second half Self’s left hand took a beating.
While up 16 points over the Tar Heels, Kansas guard Naddir Tharpe was called for a rare 5 second violation while being guarded outside the 3-point line. When Self received the explanation from the referee, he punched his hand 3 times. The punch was awkward because it was more like he was trying to teach his hand a lesson instead of a sign of anger.
Self has a few days to rest his hand as his Jayhawks will do battle with Michigan on Friday.

Here are three observations from North Carolina's 70-58 loss to Kansas in the NCAA tournament's Round of 32 on Sunday:
1. Bill Self still holds the upper hand.
For those keeping a reasonable head planted firmly on their shoulders, three games is far too small a sample size to throw around the idea that any coach "owns" the other. But Self's 3-0 record against...
Kansas Jayhawks' big man Jeff Withey blocks so hard he makes North Carolina Tar Heels fans cry.
The Kansas Jayhawks are never in a big hurry to get into the NCAA tournament. They do like to stick around once they arrive.
One of the last teams in the women's field for the second straight season, the 12th-seeded Jayhawks (19-13) can make a return trip to the round of 16 by beating fourth-seeded South Carolina (25-7) on Monday night.
They're underdogs again, but their...

North Carolina Tar Face – that is what I’m calling this. This cringe and painful face came from a North Carolina fan late in the second half in their lose to Kansas. The specific play that caused this look was Kansas’ Jeff Withey epic block by the 3-point line that was the “finish him” moment of the game.
There is always next year big Red.

The Kansas Jayhawks aren't about to complain about their No. 12 seeding.
After all, they realize they were likely the last at-large team to make the women's NCAA tournament after losing seven of their last 11 games.
They're eager, however, to prove that they're not your average 12th seed.
The Jayhawks (20-13) were the ones chanting ''Sweet 16!''...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Bill Self didn't have much to say to his team at halftime, not with Kansas playing as poorly as it had all season and North Carolina just 20 minutes away from an NCAA tournament win.
So he walked into the locker room and told his players to talk among themselves.
Senior guard Elijah Johnson remembers asking, "What are we going to do, y'all?"...

North Carolina coach Roy Williams has plenty of stories about his days at Kansas, and he pulled out one of the more poignant ones Saturday afternoon, as the two historic programs were preparing to meet in the third round of NCAA tournament.
It had to do with James Naismith and Phog Allen - the founder of the game and one of its greatest coaches - and it went something like this...
