Dwight Powell scored 15 points and Anthony Brown hit just enough free throws down the stretch to lift Stanford to a 60-57 upset of Kansas in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
Brown's two free throws with 32.4 seconds to play gave Stanford a 58-51 lead, but Conner Frankamp drilled a pair of threes around one Brown free throw to pull the Jayhawks within two with 14.9 seconds remaining. Brown then made just 1-of-2 from the line to keep Kansas breathing, but Frankamp's hurried try from beyond the arc in the closing seconds came up empty and Stanford held on to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time in six years.
Chasson Randle added 13 points for 10th-seeded Stanford (23-12), which upended New Mexico in the second round and will be the surprising higher-seeded team in Thursday's South Region semifinals in Memphis against 11th-seeded Dayton. The Flyers took out Syracuse on Saturday night.
