Wolfpack, Pirates meet in Wichita


Speaking after eighth-seeded Seton Hall's 94-83 victory over No. 9 seed NC State at Intrust Bank Arena, Rodriguez explained that he already has a little familiarity with Kansas. Good teams play, you can learn.

The Pirates are listed as small favorites after falling to the Butler Bulldogs as 1.5-point underdogs in the Big East tournament while the Wolfpack dropped a 91-87 decision to the Boston College Eagles as 3.5-point favorites in the ACC tournament after winning five of their previous six. Seton Hall shot 69 percent from the free-throw line this season, but shot 31 of 39, good for 79 percent, Thursday. "For them to get a hard-fought win in the tournament, I think it takes the pressure off them". N.C. State has been an inconsistent team this year, suffering some recent losses to bad teams in the ACC, including Georgia Tech.

Lennard said he was playing for his career. Lagerald Vick gave the Jayhawks 14 points on 5-7 while Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and Malik Newman netted ten points apiece with Newman totaling six rebounds.
