Kansas was ranked as the #1 team in the entire country, while TCU will most likely need to win the Big 12 Tournament just to get into the NCAA Tournament. Kansas rolled through the Big 12 during the regular season, going 16-2 in conference play and winning their mind-blowing 13th straight conference title.

Kansas earned the #1 seed and a first round bye in the Big 12 Tournament, while TCU was given the #8 seed and a first round date with #9 Oklahoma. The Horned Frogs cruised to an 82-63 win over the Sooners, but it turns out that they were just getting warmed up.

These crazy stats really put this upset into perspective.
