The overall #1 seed in the tournament opens play against Austin Peay of the Ohio Valley Conference.
While no 16 seed has ever beaten a 1 seed, the Jayhawks must not look ahead here by any means. Kansas has some tough teams that lie ahead, which could lead to some sloppy play here.
Austin Peay Governors
The Governors will making their first NCAA tourney appearance since all the way back in 2008.
Austin Peay comes into this one winners of 6 straight games, which included 4 wins in 4 days to capture the Ohio Valley Conference Championship. The Governors aren’t a very flashy team, in fact they get outscored by an average of 3 points per game 77-74. However, that they do have is 6-8 senior Chris Horton.
The senior averages 18.9 points per game and 12 rebounds. He did go down with an ankle injury in the first half of the conference title game, but he is expected to be at 100% here in this one.
Look for Jared Savage to also be a big factor to keep Austin Peay in this game. He hit 8 of 10 three pointers in the conference championship as he stepped up for the injured Horton.
The Jayhawks continued to bounce back and forth for the top spot in the nation all year long and it seemed like every time they got the top spot in the nation they would flop.
Kansas finally figured things out as they have rattled off 14 straight wins and look nearly unbeatable right now. Kansas rolled through the Big 12 tourney, winning all three games by an average of 12 points.
Devonte’ Graham was one of the many keys for Kansas in the Big 12 tourney as he finished with a career high 27 points in the championship and has really been one of the best leaders for them all year long.
Kansas has averaged 80 points per game and held the opposition to just 67. That bodes really well for them as they did it in one of the best conferences in the nation.
