SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Brady Morningstar scored 18 points and Kansas played like a dominant No. 1 seed in a historic NCAA regional full of underdogs, beating 12th-seeded Richmond 77-57 Friday night.

The Jayhawks (35-2) are one win from returning to the Final Four for the first time since their 2008 championship. They await the winner of 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth and 10th-seeded Florida State.

The Southwest regional is the first in NCAA history with three double-digit seeded teams. But the Spiders (29-8) looked jittery in the school’s second round-of-16 appearance.

The Jayhawks? They were calm and confident in reaching a fourth regional final under coach Bill Self.

Justin Harper led Richmond with 22 points.
