In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Tennessee at Kansas.
Both Tennessee and Kansas are top-5 teams and both are unbeaten. We have all heard of Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett but there is a guy called Grant Williams who is a 6-7 junior, averaging 22.5 points per game and his field goal percentage is 63.3%. He is just coming off a win for the Volunteers against Louisville where he had 24 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks. His impact on the game is visible and he is also being helped by Admiral Schofield in scoring. With their help, Tennessee is averaging 82.8 points per game while allowing 60.
Kansas is an inexperienced team that has its ups and downs. For example, the Jayhawks were down by 9 at the half against Marquette and then they went on a 22-0 run, in order to win the game. It will be an interesting battle between Williams and Lawson. Lawson is not any weaker. He is having doubles-doubles regularly and he is coming off a game with 26 points and 12 boards.
From what we saw until now, Kansas can’t defend the three and they are a team of stretches. I really like what Schofield and Williams are doing and those physical players can take the game to the inexperienced Jayhawks. I believe that the Volunteers will have an early lead and they won’t allow many high-offensive stretches for Kansas.
