Why TCU Will Win
It’s possible to keep the score low and hang around with the high-powered Jayhawks.
TCU got whacked 60-46 to them back in early February, but it was able to D up a bit in the second half. KU doesn’t throw up a bunch of threes, and it’ll be happy to hang around with a slower pace. Yeah, it’s winning, but it hasn’t hit 70 points in five of the last eight games.
TCU won’t be afraid to keep jacking up the threes, and it’s great at moving the ball around to get the open shots. It leads the Big 12 in made threes, but …
Why Kansas Will Win
Kansas was able to keep TCU from hitting from the outside in the first game. This is the best defense in the Big 12 and third-best in the country – it’s able to clamp down when needed.
The shooting wasn’t there – the Horned Frogs connected on 23% from three – and even worse, it got hammered on the boards. The inside presence isn’t there to deal with what the Jayhawks can do with second chance points on one end, and ending possessions on the other.
What’s Going To Happen
TCU might have beats Baylor last week, but Kansas is playing way too well. In the final home game of the year, it’s going to crank up the intensity and won’t have a problem defensively. TCU – who lost its last eight road games – will keep shooting from the outside, but it won’t be effective enough.
