Thanksgiving week college basketball tournaments often follow turkey day protocol: an appetizer followed by a memorable main course.

Malik Newman scored 28 points, Udoka Azubuike stood toe-to-toe with Seton Hall’s bruising Angel Delgado, and No. 1 seed Kansas held off the plucky Pirates 83-79 on Saturday night, sending the Jayhawks to their third consecutive Sweet 16.

Seton Hall certainly is making a late-season run at an NCAA Tournament berth.
How did anyone not see this coming?
DENVER – An upset by seed but certainly not by how the game played out. No. 11 Gonzaga dominated most of the way, shut down Seton Hall standout guard Isaiah Whitehead and powered to a 68-52 first-round victory in front of 19,500 Thursday at the Pepsi Center.
