The Jayhawks are usually stacked with a marquee player or two, and this year is no different.
Head coach Bill Self has perhaps the best player in the nation in Thomas Robinson. The 6'8 forward has proven to be a difference-maker this season for Kansas, while averaging 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.
The Jayhawks are certainly not a one-man show as senior guard Tyshawn Taylor is having an excellent season. Taylor is averaging 17.3 points and 4.8 assists a game, while shooting 49.2 percent from the field.
Kansas lost against Baylor on Friday, which snapped a nine-game winning streak. The Jayhawks are battle-tested as they have faced several ranked teams this season, but are going up against a team with an upset on their minds.
Detroit have won 10 of their last 11, and seem to have made great strides after starting the season with a 6-9 record. Two of their losses were to ranked teams: Alabama and Mississippi State.
The Titans have four starters who have averaged double-digits in scoring. They are led by sophomore guard Ray McCallum Jr., who is coming off three games where he converted 24-of-38 shots.
McCallum's father is the head coach, and served as an assistant at Indiana, so he is well aware of major programs like Kansas.
Many are predicting an upset here, as Kansas might be vulnerable following their loss to Baylor.
PREDICTION: Despite some experts feeling that this game will turn against Kansas, the Jayhawks are more than likely going to edge the Titans and mainly due to their size advantage. Robinson will be too difficult to contain, and Taylor will be aggressive in his final NCAA Tournament. Expect a spirited game in Omaha, but for Kansas to pull away in the second half.
PREDICTED SCORE: Kansas over Detroit, 66-58
