Probable Starting Lineups:
Keys to the Game:
- Amazing Defense: There was a lot of talk earlier this year about how Pat Knight was going to emphasize a running offense and as I look back at the KenPom stats on defense and here's where Kansas ranks in 2009 through 2006: 2009-87.3(7); 82.8(1); 2007-82.2(1); and 2006-84.7(2). It's amazing what defense can do for a program, even on what was supposed to be a down year for Kansas, you can win with defense. Take note Junior Knight, take note.
- Lewandowski vs. Aldrich / Okorie vs. Collins: I'm pretty interested to see Lewandowski and how he matches up against Cole Aldrich, especially after he's had an entire year to figure things out as a true freshman, which Aldrich averaged 2.8 points a game last year, although he saw less that 10 minutes a game. I'm also interested in seeing two similar players, Okorie and Collins matchup, especially considering both players are playing really well at this point.
- Senior Sendoff: It's an incredible longshot and it can be said about a bunch of different programs around the country at this time of year, but it would be really nice to send Voskuil, Prince, Rizvic, Suljagic and Craig out with a memorable final game.
