2018 NCAA Tournament: Final Four

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Kansas’ Lagerald Vick started the year with a series of strong performances — and then abruptly faded for most of Big 12 play.

The 6-foot-5 junior is back to playing reliably productive minutes again, and that’s a big reason why the Jayhawks are back in the Final Four for the first time in six years.

Beyond each team’s top scorers and best talents, Vick is part of a group that could play critical roles in determining whether Kansas, Villanova , Michigan or Loyola-Chicago ends up hoisting the trophy Monday night in San Antonio. Others include Wildcats guard Phil Booth, Wolverines point guard Zavier Simpson and Ramblers regional hero Ben Richardson.
