Kansas State vs Kansas Game Preview
Why Kansas State Will Win
We did this back in late January and Kansas State gave the Jayhawks all they could handle. It might have been a 78-75 Kansas win, but the Wildcats did a great job from the field and locked down from three.

The Kansas State interior presence isn’t there.
There aren’t any blocks and rebounding against the Jayhawks will be a massive problem. Kansas scores in bunches, it’s fantastic at coming up with easy points on the inside, and be shocked if there isn’t a massive difference in rebounding.
