One of the best programs in college basketball over recent years, the Kansas Jayhawks haven't made too many deep NCAA Tournament runs over the last decade or so.

Here's a look at Kansas' NCAA Tournament history.

Has Kansas Ever Won a National Championship?

Kansas has won the NCAA Tournament three times in program history, with the Jayhawks' most recent title coming in 2008.
