Kansas' Josh Jackson, on playing with off-the-court issues: "I've been really excited to play for awhile now. When I step out there on that court, I'm really not thinking about anything else but basketball. It's just a game and I'm going to just play it." Court officials released an affidavit this week that says Jackson threatened to "beat" a women's basketball player during a confrontation in December. Jackson scored 17 in Kansas' win Friday over UC Davis.

Actor Rob Lowe is in the house in Tulsa watching Kansas-UC Davis. Lowe said he is actually shooting a documentary in Tulsa, which is where Lowe's first movie "The Outsiders" took place.

Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti is here in Tulsa, presumably to see Kansas' array of NBA talent.

Whether it's been blocked shots, rebound slams or step-back jumpers, Kansas' Josh Jackson is putting on a show for NBA scouts.

UC Davis coach Jim Les drew a technical foul at the 7:17 mark, presumably to fire up his team, down just two. Instead, Kansas went on a 27-4 run to effectively put this one out of reach at halftime.

Kansas is finally rolling over UC Davis, thanks to a faster pace -- and Josh Jackson, who has converted a couple of NBA finishes in traffic.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

More shaky play from Kansas, as the Jayhawks missed six straight shots at one point, including four on a single possession. Meanwhile, the UC Davis bench has given the Aggies a boost to keep the game close, while Kansas' bench has been a non-factor.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Sloppy start for Kansas, which has more turnovers (3) than field goals (2). Bill Self not happy.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Everyone knows a 16 seed has never beaten a 1 and BPI doesn't see it happening when UC Davis takes on Kansas. Expect the Jayhawks to roll over the Aggies on Friday.

ESPN Stats and Information  

UC Davis took care of business against North Carolina Central in its First Four win Wednesday, but now comes the hard part: a date with No. 1 Kansas on Friday. Needless to say, the odds are against the Aggies.

ESPN Stats and Information  

UC Davis hasn't won much since joining Division I in 2004-05, but the Aggies' victory Wednesday set them up for a Round of 64 date with No. 1 seed Kansas -- a team that knows a thing or two about racking up wins.

UC Davis is well aware of the history for No. 16 seeds and knows Kansas will represent a major challenge on Friday. But the Aggies aren't backing down after winning their first NCAA tournament game in the First Four, with Chima Moneke and his teammates looking to make history.

Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

The NCAA tournament debut was a successful one, but UC Davis may have made it harder than it needed to be in the First Four at UD Arena. The Aggies came up with the clutch defensive stops and enough free throws to knock off North Carolina Central, but they turned the ball over 18 times to keep the game close. That won't cut it moving on to Friday -- where Midwest No. 1 seed Kansas is waiting.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

UC Davis beats North Carolina Central 67-63 in NCAA First Four game in Dayton, Ohio. The ViewFromVegas is the Aggies did it as 3.5-point underdogs and +145 on the money line while the game stayed just under the betting total of 131 points. UC Davis moves into the 64-team NCAA field and will face Midwest No. 1 seed Kansas on Friday.

Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

North Carolina Central made a great adjustment midway through the first half, dialing up the defensive intensity with a halfcourt trap that gave UC Davis all kinds of problems. But when the Aggies break that pressure, they are getting good shots -- trailing only by 3 points at halftime despite 9 turnovers and too many wasted possessions. That could bode well for UC Davis if it finds a solution at intermission in the First Four.
