Kansas looks to wrap up ninth straight Big 12 title

The No. 3/4 Kansas Jayhawks will wrap up their regular season Saturday against Baylor, a team fighting for an NCAA tournament spot. Coming off Kansas’ largest margin in a home finale since 2008 , Kansas is firing on all cylinders just in time for the postseason. Baylor, on the other hand, is struggling for their postseason lives. Currently sitting at  17-13, Baylor lost a heart breaker to Kansas State Saturday on a Rodney McGruder buzzer-beating three-pointer.

Players to Watch For:


#15 Elijah Johnson: Johnson has been on fire since his 39-point outing against Iowa State February 25. Dishing out 12 assists and adding 7 points on his senior night, it is safe to say Johnson has returned to form from last year’s NCAA tournament run. His much improved play has made the Jayhawks a formidable opponent for anyone they may play the rest of the season. The last time a Kansas player had back to back games of 10 assists or more was when Aaron Miles dropped 12 and 11 dimes on Kansas State and Iowa State, respectively in January of 2004.

# 5 Jeff Withey: 22 points, nine rebounds and four blocks were just some of Withey’s highlights from an outstanding senior night against Texas Tech. The fifth-year senior has just been fantastic offensively and defensively for the Jayhawks this season and has been a major contributor to the team’s success. Withey provides instant defense for Kansas and very rarely gets into foul trouble. He is the perfect combination for the 2013 version of the Jayhawks


#21 Isaiah Austin: The 7’1 freshman could prove to be a tough matchup for Jeff Withey. Although not as physically mature as Withey, Austin’s pure athleticism could be tough for the slower Withey to handle.

#55 Pierre Jackson: Averaging a conference leading 19.1 points per game, Jackson, an experienced senior, is an offensive juggernaut for the Bears. Whichever Jayhawk draws the assignment of guarding Jackson has a tough day ahead of them.

Last Time They Met:

How I See It:

Kansas is the better team in this game, as they are in most of the games they play, but Baylor could be a tough game for the Jayhawks. With postseason tournaments looming, Kansas is vulnerable to be looking ahead.

Prediction: Bill Self out-coaches Scott Drew once again, and Kansas guarantees themselves at least a share of a ninth straight Big 12 championship, 76-68
