The Buffaloes (25-7) saw their first trip to the NCAA tournament in nine years come to an unexpected end.
The Buffs, ranked 19th, were favored, but they missed Rachel Hargis’ presence in the post. The junior center sprained her right knee in practice a week ago and didn’t play, robbing Colorado of an inside player to counter Kansas’ size down low.

Iowa State (24-8) finally solved beating Gonzaga at home thanks to dynamic shooting from behind the 3-point line and an awful shooting performance by the Bulldogs.
