Even though they do not have much to fear, I would think, the Jayhawks have to be focused given they are 0-2 against the PAC 12 this season.
Stanford has played a number of other power programs and consistently fell short. This would be a big win for them if they hope to go “dancing” at the end of the season.
Those aforementioned losses to Washington and Arizona State were a surprise but in my opinion this is still a team capable of winning the national title.
They definitely have a perimeter focus but it is interesting that Lagerald Vick has emerged as their top scorer so far (marginally). He has been shooting it really well this season.
Same goes for Devonta Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk. All three are making more than 44% of their three which creates a lot of space on the floor.
Udoka Azubuike gives the Jayhawks a presence at the rim on both ends. Hopefully he can improve his free throw shooting.
Stanford is in the wilderness a little. In their mind they should be a a PAC 12 contender that goes to the Tournament with regularity but that is not the case. Jerod Haasse is trying to get the program to that level.
Currently they do have a star in Reid Travis. He is scoring 22ppg but is more of a bruiser than a finesse player on the perimeter which is where they struggle.
The presence of Michael Humphrey means that he does not have to do all the banging. Humphrey might average a double-double and his outside shot is actually a thing now.
Guard play is critical to success at all levels of hoops and the Cardinal just don’t get a lot of production from those spot. That is tough to overcome.

Free Kansas Jayhawks vs. Stanford Cardinal NCAAB Prediction:
The Jayhawks will certainly be favoured and this will be a neutral site contest. They are by far the better team but the same was said before their two losses.
This will be a real contrast in style. The Cardinal will be physical up front while the Jayhawks will dominate on the perimeter.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: OVER
I know they have disappointed us twice this season but Kansas is still the play. Assuming the spread is around -10 or so they won’t have to be great to cover.
