In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Texas at Kansas.
The Texas Longhorns will be looking to bounce back from their two-game winning streak. They are just coming off an L against Texas Tech in a game where they struggled to convert their shots into points. Kerwin Roach II led the Horns with 17 points on 6 of 13 shooting while Jaxson Hayes finished with 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting. As a team, Texas is averaging 71.1 points per game on 43% shooting from the field.
The Kansas Jayhawks, on the other side, will be looking to build some momentum after coming off a 73-68 win over Baylor. Lagerald Vick led Kansas with 18 points while Dedric Lawson added 17 on his own. Lawson is the leading scorer with 19.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. Kansas is also averaging 78.8 points per game on 47.8% shooting.
Even though Kansas won few games in a row in recent weeks, they haven’t been dominant at all and they needed to make buckets late in the games, in order to secure their victories. I expect Texas to play another hard-fought basketball and give the Jayhawks some headaches.
