Game preview UCONN vs Kansas

This could be a Final Goutr preview when these two teams clash at Allen Fieldhouse on Friday night. UCONN has not been tested as of yet, but they will on Friday night. Kansas has played elite competition so far this season and has proved they are an elite team.

Kansas Can the Jayhawks topple the Huskies?

The Kansas Jayhawks rebounded from their loss to Marquette with victories against Tennessee and Eastern Illinois. Averaging 81.3 points on 54 per cent shooting and allowing 64.7 on 35.7 shooting, Hunter Dickinson is averaging 21.7 points and 12.7 rebounds while Kevin McCullar Jr. averages 18.1 points and 7.3 rebounds; KJ Adams Jr. averages double-digit scoring while Dajuan Harris Jr. dishes out 7.4 assists per game for Kansas. Shooting 35 per cent from long range and 67.4 per cent from free throw line, Kansas Jayhawks are allowing 28.3 per cent shooting from beyond the arc while collecting 37 rebounds per game;

ConnecticutWill UCONN get it done on the road?

The UConn Huskies have recently won against New Hampshire, Manhattan, Texas and Indiana. Averaging 88.7 points on 51.4 per cent shooting while allowing 60.6 points on 38.3 percent, Cam Spencer averages 16.3 points and 3.3 rebounds. In comparison, Tristen Newton averages 15.6 points with 6.9 assists. In contrast, Donovan Clingan averages 10 points. Alex Karaban grabs 5.7 rebounds for each game he plays for UConn Huskies, which shot 30.9 per cent from 3-point range and 75.6 per cent from free throw line while allowing 34.1 per cent deep shooting while collecting 39.3 rebounds per game against opponents who also shoot 30.9 per cent from 3-point range allowing 34.1 per cent from 3-point range as well.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet Kansas to cover

Connecticut will face their first real test of the season here at Allen Fieldhouse. Teams usually can’t control 7-foot-2 Clingan, but I think Dickinson has an advantage.

Dickinson can not only effectively pull Clingan away from the paint – with his consistent 3-point shooting — but that will allow K.J. Adams Jr. and Kevin McCullar Jr. to attack more frequently against UConn’s defense; should Clingan find himself fouled early, the result could quickly turn disastrous for UConn.

Kansas’ biggest weakness lies in their lack of depth, with physical Huskies often forcing foul trouble upon them. Yet Bill Self’s unit ranks in the top 20 in FTA/FGA; moreover, their big three, Dajuan Harris Jr., Dickinson and McCullar, show excellent discipline on court.

This contest should be an entertaining battle between two outstanding programs. If UConn can generate offensive firepower from outside, Kansas could find itself playing catch-up against Dan Hurley’s squad – not something they should want to be doing against them.

Given Kansas’ home-court advantage and my perception that Dickinson could be an impact player against Clingan, I’m picking them to win on Friday.
