Eastern Kentucky falls short against Kansas, 80-69

ST. LOUIS (AP) Glenn Cosey was ready to head down the tunnel to the court of the Scottrade Center for Eastern Kentucky's game against Kansas on Friday when he caught the end of Mercer's upset of Duke.

"It gave me a lot of confidence," he said, "that anything was possible."

Cosey and his cohorts nearly added to the madness of this March, keeping the second-seeded Jayhawks on the ropes until the closing minutes of their second-round game. It wasn't until Kansas finally wore down the 15th-seeded Colonels inside that it pulled away for an 80-69 victory.
