Saturday college hoops has an inner conference BIG 12 showdown in the works between the Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Longhorns. These two teams have both tournament quality teams and have been tested all year as they’ve been competing in the stacked BIG 12 conference.
Kansas (17-7, 11-5 BIG12) will make the trip south through into the frozen state of Texas to take on Texas (13-6, 7-5 BIG 12).
The streaking Kansas Jayhawks will be looking to get revenge on the Texas Longhorns during this Tuesday’s Big 12 Conference game. Kansas was handed their lone home loss on January 2nd to Texas in an embarrassing 84-59 beatdown.
Kansas had their worst shooting performance all season going 20/65 (30.8%) from the field and 3/23 (13%) from deep range which made all the difference as Texas shot the ball well going 30/61 (49.2%) and 12/26 (46.2%) from 3PT. Texas had 8 players receive minutes with 5 of those scoring in double figures which is a testament to their great offensive performance. Jalen Wilson was the lone bright spot for the Jayhawks scoring 20 points and adding 7 rebounds meanwhile the other players were never able to find a groove.
Kansas hasn’t had the year they were looking for and are in line to not win the BIG 12 Conference for the first time in 15 seasons. They are currently 11-5 in conference which is behind the undefeated #2 Baylor Bears and #9 Oklahoma Sooners.
After losing to West Virginia 91-79 the Jayhawks fell out of the top 25 altogether for just the first time since 2009 and looked to join their other blue blood brothers of Duke, North Carolina, and Kentucky who have all looked terrible this year. Since then they have straightened the ship and have rolled out five straight victories to make a return back to the #17 spot. On Saturday Kansas won at home 67-61 over the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Kansas lacks a perennial star or veteran leader as they’ve been known to have the past which can be accounted for in their current record and ranking. Regardless, the Jayhawks have 5 players averaging in double figures.
Texas has been in countless close games all season including 5 of their last 9 games coming down to a one possession score as the BIG 12 conference continues to be the most competitive in the country. Texas is ranked high nationally but sit exactly in the middle of the conference at 7-5. In their last outing Texas blew a 19 point lead at home to the West Virginia Mountaineers and ended up losing by 2 which is the same differential they beat West Virginia by earlier in the year.
The Longhorns have 4 players averaging in double figures and Andrew Jones leads the team with 15.6 points to go along with 4.7 rebounds as he continues to have a great year after once being diagnosed with cancer.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Texas is 1-6 ATS in last 7 games
- Texas OVERS are 9-2 in last 11 games
- Kansas is 5-0 ATS In last 5 games
- Kansas UNDERS are 3-0 in last 3 games
Free Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Longhorns NCAAB Prediction:
This game has the makings to be a great one between two competitive nationally ranked teams. Kansas has been rolling as of late and Texas continues to play every game close. These teams met earlier in the year as Texas blew out Kansas for their only home loss and I expect the Jayhawks to enter looking for revenge. I’ll take Kansas to win in a close one.
