The Kansas Jayhawks will face the Oregon Ducks on Saturday in Kansas City in the final step of their bid for the Final Four. The previous three opponents posed no troubled for the Midwest No. 1 seed, while the third-seeded Ducks, on the other side, seem to have a knack for winning close games.
The Kansas Jayhawks (31-4) will not slow down on their own and Purdue was not the team to make them. The Jayhawks have put quite a show in front of their fans at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, outplaying the Boilermakers and winning comfortably 98-66. They’ve won all three Tournament games by at least 20 points. The final score doesn’t tell the whole story though, but shows that the Jayhawks know how to put their opponents away and that they are merciless doing it. The game was not exactly close, but Purdue was within 10 points with 10 minutes to go before Kansas run away with it.
The Jayhawks seem to get better as the tournament progresses. Once again, the game didn’t start too well for them and they trailed by 7 midway through the first half. It was the strong outside shooting of the Boilermakers that has put them in the hole, but Kansas game plan came to fruition soon after. They’ve collapsed on Swanigan and other bigs, not allowing them to get into the flow. At first, Purdue’s inside-outside game was working perfectly, but when the fatigue settled in, Swanigan tried to counter with deep shots of his own, making the inside presence less of a factor. Meanwhile, Kansas was able to get in transition and put the pressure on Purdue defense. By halftime, it was Jayhawks by 7. Kansas shot the ball extremely well (disregarding 15-of-22 from the charity line). Guards Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham paced them with 26 points apiece and 9 threes. As a team, the Jayhawks have hit 15 three-pointers and shot around 54 percent of their both inside and outside shots. It was not just the shooting – Kansas won the rebounding battle against formidable Purdue frontcourt and committed less turnovers and less fouls.
