LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas coach Bill Self put together one of the toughest schedules in the country for one of the most veteran teams from a BCS conference.

He's gambling that experience will prevail in an era of instant gratification.

The Jayhawks received a No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region of the NCAA tournament Sunday and will open against No. 15 seed Detroit on Friday in Omaha, Neb.

The Horizon League champion Titans promise to put up a fight, but it's hard to believe they will intimidate Kansas. The Jayhawks already have navigated a schedule that included games against Kentucky, Duke, Ohio State and Georgetown, plus an 18-game Big 12 schedule.

Self called it "a monster schedule," one he hopes will pay off during the month of March.
