    Kansas vs. NC Central/UC Davis Game Preview

    Date: March 17
    Time: 6:50 p.m.
    Venue:  BOK Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma
    Region: Midwest

    Kansas Strengths

    The Jayhawks might have the best combination of talent in the nation with Frank Mason III, Josh Jackson, Devonte’ Graham and a great supporting cast around those three. They have a perimeter game, an inside presence and solid defense to make them quite possibly the best all-around team in the Tournament.

    Kansas Weaknesses

    Too often Kansas doesn’t play a full 40 minutes but gets away with it because of their immense amount of talent. But things change in the NCAA Tournament, and if the Jayhawks aren’t prepared from the get-go, they could find themselves bounced before they realize what hit them.

    Kansas Statistics

    Scoring Margin: 10.8 (25)
    Rebound Margin: 4.3 (53)
    Turnover Margin: .4 (160)
