Game preview Kansas vs Indiana

Kansas will travel to Bloomington to battle the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday. The Jayhawks’ only loss was to an elite Marquette team, but they have not hit their stride as of yet. The Jayhawks last game showed that as the Jayhawks struggled to beat Eastern Illinois. Can the Hoosiers take advantage of the Jayhawks’ struggles? The Hoosiers have back court issues with Xavier Johnson out. Freshman Gabe Cupps played well in the loss to Auburn, but senior Trey Galloway has struggled. The Hoosiers guard play will need to step up if they are to have any chance in this game.

Indiana Can the Hoosiers pull off the upset?

Ware and Reneau give Indiana’s frontcourt the ability to play down low against Dickinson.

Without Johnson in their lineup, all three Hoosier forwards represent the top three players for Indiana.

Kel’el Ware has been stellar this season and should receive first-team All-Big Ten recognition, if he continues to play the way he has been. On defense, he is an effective rim protector, while his three-level scoring makes him a worthy candidate.

Hoosiers forward Malik Reneau and freshman guard Mackenzie Mgbako may form one of the nation’s premier frontcourt duos.

Unfortunately, that is where the good news ends.

Johnson’s injury only compounds these problems.

Indiana rarely attempts the triple, as their Hoosiers don’t pose many perimeter-scoring threats, and I doubt whether or not they will keep this game close without hitting some shots.

Kansas Can Kansas roll on the road?

Kansas made headlines this offseason by signing Hunter Dickinson.

Kansas Jayhawks’ new big man Dedric Lawson has mostly lived up to lofty preseason expectations, providing Purdue big man Zach Edey with some stiff competition for National Player of the Year honors.

Kansas remains a formidable foe; they lead the nation in assist rate (73%), led by superstar guard Dajuan Harris. Kevin McCuller has also become an effective playmaker on offense.

Kansas may not shoot much from deep, but their few attempts are paying dividends: 40% from deep, good for 12th in the nation.

The Jayhawks on the road at Assembly Hall will tell us a lot about this team headed into conference play.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet Kansas -6.5

Indiana can hang in this game for a while, but the only way to win is to be able to hit from the outside. That has been sorely lacking for the Hoosiers this season. Take Kansas -6.5
