Kansas is 7-1. They play Iowa State tonight in the biggest game of the Big 12 season thus far. Will they get the job done in Allen Fieldhouse?
The Jayhawks spanked Kansas State, but the real fun begins tonight when the Cyclones come to town. Kansas is looking to avenge their only loss in conference play thus far, but will they be able to get their revenge on Iowa State? We all have different opinions and confidence levels about the matchup.
What exactly did the Sunflower Showdown say about Kansas? They got off to a huge lead, but from the 10:00 1st half mark on, the game was played about even. Should we be concerned about the lack of production from Perry Ellis and Kelly Oubre down the stretch? Or did Bruce Weber just make productive halftime adjustments?
Texas was once considered to be the best team in the Big 12 – they’re now in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament. They hit an all-new low when they lost to SCOTT DREW by 23 points this last weekend, but we’re not so sure that Kansas should forget about the Longhorns just yet. Who is the bigger threat to KU’s run of titles – West Virginia or Iowa State? How many games will KU lead the standings by after this week’s games are over?
We then look at an interesting Fansided article that assembles the “All Bill Self” team, and give our opinions on who should represent the 12-year tenure of the Kansas coach. After going through the recent Jayhawk performances in the NBA (led by Andrew Wiggins’ career-high in points), we preview the big game tonight against the Iowa State Cyclones. Ryan talks about why Monte Morris, not Georges Niang, is the key to slowing down the Jayhawks’ bitter rival, while Josh and Daniel opt for a lower-scoring prediction.
