The Kansas Jayhawks have two VERY important conference games coming up in the next week, and whether they win or lose these games could boost or wreck the rest of their season.
The Jayhawks’ last game was against San Diego State University, where they lost to the 21st ranked Aztecs, 61-57. This Saturday, KU welcomes the Kansas State Wildcats to Allen Fieldhouse in a battle of two Top-25 ranked teams.
Most would say that KU chokes in important games, and that is very understandable. But a rivalry game is very different from just an important game. The last big “rivalry” game that the Jayhawks played in was against hated Duke University, which they pulled out the win.
K-State is ranked 25th, and currently holds a 10-game winning streak, taking down #6 Oklahoma State and #21 Gonzaga. They only score 67.7 points per game, against KU’s 77.7. That huge 10 point deficit, along with a better field-goal percentage is why I am picking KU to win straight up. And thanks to the non-sense “We’re still in it” fouling from K-State in the last minute, the Jayhawks will cover the point spread. Easy.
Final Score: 88-76 in favor of Kansas.
