Team Notes

The Kansas Jayhawks started the season unranked but have climbed up the rankings to their current #31 position. They've reached that ranking while playing without a third doubles team for a good portion of the season. A few of their most notable wins this season include: #22 Tennessee, #54 TCU and Big 12 competitors West Virginia, Kansas State, and Iowa State. 

Kansas is seeded #7 in this tournament and will face #10 seed West Virginia in the first round on Thursday, April 27.
