Final Four 2022 – Social media erupts for Kansas Jayhawks’ NCAA Tournament win over Villanova Wildcats


The Kansas Jayhawks won Game 1 of the Final Four to secure a spot in Monday’s NCAA Tournament national title game. KU defeated the Villanova Wildcats, 81-65.

Along with some monster dunks, Kansas senior forward David McCormack had a career night with a season-high 25 points and 9 rebounds. Ochai Agbaji added 21 points and made 6 3-pointers.

The win extended Kansas’ recent winning streak to 10, the longest active streak in Div. I. The Jayhawks last lost on March 3. With the win, Kansas will play its 10th national title game in program history. They join UCLA, Kentucky, North Carolina and Duke as the only teams to appear in 10 title games. This will be Kansas coach Bill Self’s third national title appearance. He won the title in 2008 when KU beat Memphis.

Social media reacted to the big win and the Jayhawks’ place in the title game and showed respect to Villanova:
