How Kansas Wins

The Jayhawks need to keep scoring as they averaging 79.3 points per game which ranks 22nd in the country. In addition to scoring 79.3 points per game the Jayhawks are doing it on 50.3% shooting. That shooting percentage ranks 2nd in the nation. The Jayhawks are outscoring their opponents by an average of 9.9 points per game. They are also a very good rebounding team.

How Kansas State Wins

The Wildcats will win the game if they keep playing great defense. They rank 19th in opponents points as they give up an average of 61.8 per game. Kansas State’s opponents are shooting only 39.8% and that ranks 29th in the nation. The Wildcats will need to rebound the ball better if they want a better chance at winning the game. They rank 90th in the country in rebounding as they average 36.5 per game.

 

My Prediction

Kansas wants to go out and score a lot of points. If they do that they will have a good chance in winning the game. Kansas State wans to play solid defense and hold their opponent to less then 40% shooting. If they do that the Wildcats will have a very good chance at winning.

I think that Kansas plays to their style and puts up a lot of points on their rival. Kansas State will try to stay in the game with their defense but the Jayhawks offense is just to good as Kansas gets the win.

Final Score

Kansas: 85
Kansas State: 76
