NCAA Tournament: Kansas vs. Seton Hall fearless prediction and game preview.

Game Time: 7:10 ET
Venue: Intrust Bank Arena, Wichita, KS
All You Really Need To Know About Kansas
It took about a half to get the job done, but Kansas managed tp pull away from a pesky Penn team to win 76-60. Devonte Graham went off for 29 points, but it was a team effort from three, it hit 15-of-17 free throws, and it held firm defensively from outside.
The Jayhawks aren’t all that deep, but they’re great shooters and they don’t turn the ball over. The problem is on the free throw line, but as they showed against Penn, they can get hot at the right time.
All You Really Need To Know About Seton Hall
It might not have always been pretty – there were a LOT of fouls on both sides – in a 94-83 win over NC State. Seton Hall hit their free throws – not the norm – and came up with 40 rebounds in a tough, powerful performance. Making 48% of their shots helped.
The Pirates are amazing on the boards and can defend inside and out – they’re going to be a problem for the Jayhawks shooters. They don’t pass all that well, and they normally can’t hit free throws, but they’re as hard-nosed as they come.
What’s Going To Happen
This is the wrong team for Kansas to face. Seton Hall will get in there and battle on the boards, and it won’t be intimidated by facing the big, bad Jayhawks.
However, with a home game in Wichita, Kansas will find that extra burst late to survive and advance, but it’ll be a war. Points aren’t going to be easy to come by down the stretch.
