After establishing a lead early, No. 1 seed Kansas found itself in the same position as Miami and Duke: defending a previously-established lead against a higher seed charging back into the game. UConn was able to make things interesting in the second half, but any feeling that the Huskies could pull the upset were washed away with this alley-oop from Devonte Graham to Wayne Selden.
Selden took the pass and cocked it back with a purpose, adding a fantastic clip to his postseason highlight reel that includes the dunk that made Uncle Anthony go absolutely bananas.
SEND IT IN SELDEN! https://t.co/oQS8ZhelqB

Kansas ended up winning 73-61, advancing to the Sweet 16 where they’ll meet the winner of Sunday’s Maryland-Hawaii game.
Now, let’s re-live Selden’s dunk from the Big 12 tournament, shall we?
It’s Wayne’s and we’re all just livin’ in it. @KUHoops #Big12MBB https://t.co/WfvUe1V4SH
