The long arms of Cole Aldrich forced the Dayton Flyers down for a rough landing.
Aldrich, the 6-foot-11 Kansas sophomore, posted a triple-double
with 13 points, 20 rebounds and 10 blocked shots to lead the
defending NCAA champions past the 11th-seeded Flyers 60-43 in the
second round Sunday.
Shaquille O'Neal set the NCAA tournament record with 11 blocks
in a game for LSU in 1992. Shawn Bradley had 10 in 1991 for BYU.
Aldrich's feat was, officially, the sixth triple-double in the
history of the tournament.
Sherron Collins had 25 points to pace the Jayhawks (27-7), the
No. 3 seed, which moved on to play the USC-Michigan State winner in
the Midwest Region semifinals next Friday in Indianapolis.
