The Jayhawks made their first Final Four appearance in 1940, but it would be another 25 years until their next trip. They made it back-to-back in 1952 and 1953, then had a pair of trips in 1974 and 1986. After a long drought, Kansas finally returned to the Final Four in 1991, but have been a mainstay ever since, making it five times in the last 18 years. Led by head coach Bill Self, Kansas has become one of the most dominant programs in college basketball over the last two decades.
This was the Jayhawks’ 14th trip to the Final Four. They had gone in 1940, 1952, 1957, 1971, 1974, 1986, 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995, 2002, 2003 and 2008. Kansas won the national championship in 1952, 1988 and 2008.
This will be Kansas’ 15th Final Four appearance, which is the second most in NCAA history behind UCLA’s 17. The Jayhawks last made the Final Four in 2016, when they lost to eventual champion Villanova in the semifinals.
In total, Kansas has been to the Final Four 14 times and has won the NCAA championship 3 times.
