The Kansas Jayhawks trumped state testing at some Lawrence schools this week.

Several Lawrence schools postponed state assessment testing scheduled for Tuesday out of concern that students would be tired or absent after watching Monday's NCAA championship game between Kansas and Kentucky.

Schools can take the assessments between Feb. 15 and April 20. Many Lawrence schools scheduled the tests this week, which is the week after spring break.

But New York School principal Nancy DeGarmo said she knew many of the school's students and teachers would be up late Monday because the game didn't tip off until 8:30 p.m. So the school moved the testing to Friday.

Other principals said they were concerned many students would miss school Tuesday.
