Kansas looks to make the Big 12 title game for the 5th time in the last 6 tournaments, and the 15th time overall when it takes on Texas tonight. The Jayhawks maybe locked up a 3 seed in the NCAA tournament with their win last night over Oklahoma, but can definitely do so with one tonight over Texas.
The Horns are probably a top 5 team nationally in terms of pure talent, which makes their stats so puzzling. Texas finished just 4th in the Big 12 in offense, scoring 1.05 points per possession. Texas did finish 3rd in the league in both two and three point shooting, and they also took the most threes in the league, so it’s no mystery as to what Kansas will have to shut down tonight (although it is worth noting there was a 5 or so minute stretch during the game in Austin when Texas was getting basically everything it wanted at the rim as well).
