This is not the best Kansas team we have seen but after all the criticism they wound up being a top seed and starting in their home state. That is pretty good.
Kudos to the Quakers for taking the Ivy League auto-bid. Unfortunately for them this does not look like the first #16 seed to topple a #1.
Poor Kansas, they wound up winning the B12 regular season and tournament titles. In a down year. Sure this team might not look like what we are used to but they are very good.
Udoka Azubuike has been suffering through an injury but is expected to be ready to play in this one. Without him this Kansas team looks especially small at times.
Surrounding whatever pivot they put out there will be a great set of perimeter players. DeVonte Graham basically never leaves the floor as is as steady a point guard as there is…and a senior.
It seems like Malik Newman is finally beginning to realize his potential. He scored at least 20 points in all three B12 tourney victories.
Penn finished tied in the IVY regular season standing and then beat Harvard in the Ivy tournament. They did not sneak in and some say they are underseeded.
It is always hard to evaluate small conference teams because of who they play during the regular season. The only game the Quakers played against elite competition was a 28 point loss at Villanova.
Sophomore Guard Ryan Betley is the top scorer for the Quakers at 14ppg. Unfortunately he is not a great deep shooter which is usually critical for major upsets.
Fellow sophomore AJ Brodeur is Penn’s best inside player. He is just 6’8″ though and will have to stay on the floor and be effective, especially rebounding, against bigger opponents.

Free Pennsylvania Quakers vs. Kansas Jayhawks NCAAB Prediction:
An upset seems unlikely here but that doesn’t mean the Quakers can’t hang with the Jayhawks for a while.
This is not your typical Kansas team but I don’t see how the Quakers will be able to exploit them in any significant way.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kansas -14.5
This one is already coming down so you may want to wait. With respect to Penn I just don’t see how they keep up for the full 40.
