Kansas generally looked like a top seed in their opener. They won easily but without much inside presence.
Seton Hall won going away but there were some moments where things were tight. They played well but they might have gotten bailed out by some bad NC State decision making.
Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall is a good, experienced team and they played like it. They have not had previous success in March but maybe they relax now that the monkey is off their back.
The Pirates scores 94 points so they go good production throughout their lineup. It was mostly the usual suspects but that is what you want at this time of year.
They did flash some depth with Ismael Sonogo chipping in 10 and 10 off the bench. Desi Rodriguez had 20 off the bench too but really he is a starter.
Rebounding will be key in this one and Seton Hall is really good at it. If they can lock up the defensive backboard they will definitely be in this one.
Even though they dispatched Penn with ease there was some learning from the win in handicapping the Jayhawks.
We did not see much of Udoke Azubuike – just three minutes. Mitch Lightfoot started as the lone big and scored 9 with 11 boards – he is just 6’8″ though
DeVonte Graham looks like an MOP in the making if Kansas goes far. The senior guard led all scorers with 29. None of their other perimeter players stood out.
Seton Hall has some size and the Jayhawks are going to need to be more forceful on the glass. In short, Lightfoot is not going to be enough inside. They will need Azubuike or Silvio de Sousa, likely both.

Free Seton Hall Pirates vs. Kansas Jayhawks NCAAB Prediction:
Of course Kansas is the favourite. They should win…but this season has been about a lot of Kansas shoulds, but didn’t. They make me nervous.
Seton Hall will have to make some shots though. The Jayhawks will be content to trade three for two all game long.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Seton Hall +4.5
Very curious to see how this lines moves as game time approaches. I would think you could get a better number with public money on Kansas.
