Sweet 16: Bill Self Kicks Roy Williams Butt (again), 70-58

OK. That's not the real headline, but it's close enough.

Before Missouri headed South East in 2012, whenever KU & MU met on game day, fans went fanatical over the 'border war' - you know, ala pre-civil war raiders and bush wackers - except the modern incarnation has more beer and less blood.

Needless to say, folks in these parts carry a grudge for a while, so they're still a bit PO'd at ol' Roy for doing his double-talking yo-yo impersonation and sneaking off to North Carolina in 2003. But Bill Self has helped heal the rift.

From Rustin Dodd at the KC Star:
'The No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks had buried No. 8 seed North Carolina with an emotional second-half comeback, advancing to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the third straight year with a 70-58 victory. And the coach, Bill Self, had vanquished former KU coach Roy Williams and his Tar Heels for the third time in six years.'
Missouri's Tigers were shot down and out in the 1st round last Thursday by Colorado.

Dang it.
