The ninth ranked Kansas Jayhawks travel to Fort Worth, Texas at 8 p.m. CT this evening to take on the Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University.

Kansas comes in boasting a 5-1 conference record, good for tops in the Big 12. TCU finished its non-conference season at 14-0, but has since dropped all but one of its conference games. The lone win for TCU, a 20-point win at Texas Tech.

The Jayhawks feature reigning Big 12 Newcomer of the Week Cliff Alexander, who has averaged 14.5 points and 11 rebounds in the past two games, both wins against ranked opponents. Also beginning to shine is freshman point guard Devonte Graham. After missing six games with a sprained toe, Graham has been able to give the starter, Frank Mason, some time to rest on the bench. Graham has just one turnover to 20 assists in his five games back.

The Horned Frogs will be facing their third consecutive nationally ranked team. TCU fell to Texas 66-48 and pushed West Virginia to a close 86-85 overtime loss in its recent matchups. Senior guard Kyan Anderson leads TCU scoring 13.7 points per game, good for seventh in the conference. He also leads the team in three pointers, assists and steals. His impact will be noteworthy in this contest. Another senior guard, Tey Zeigler is second team scoring for the Horned Frogs at 8.7 points per game. Karviar Shepherd, a 6’10” sophomore center, could provide the Jayhawks trouble with his size.

Kansas coach Bill Self is 11-4 all-time against TCU, 5-1 while at Kansas. TCU head coach Trent Johnson is 2-3 against Kansas, with one of his wins coming while Johnson was at Stanford in 2003-04.

The Jayhawks are currently listed as the number one team in the RPI rankings.

TCU will be hosting its opponent in the Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center, a district high school facility that seats less than 5000 people. TCU’s current gym is being renovated.

The University of Kansas Jayhawks (15-3, 4-1) take on the Texas Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) Saturday at 1:00 p.m. in Austin.

Kansas will be up for a big test this weekend on Saturday when they take on the Longhorns of Texas on the road.

The biggest disadvantage that the Jayhawks will have is size. KU only has two players over 6-foot-8 and that is Landen Lucas and Hunter Mickelson. The Longhorns have six players including their star freshmen Myles Turner who stand at 6’9″ or taller.

With Coach Self not starting Mickelson or Lucas in the paint, Texas could look to do all of their scoring inside against Cliff Alexander and Perry Ellis who are under 6-foot-8.

However, the Jayhawks do have the momentum going into their stand off on Saturday after their huge win Monday night against Oklahoma. KU is also tied with Kansas State and Iowa State for the Big 12 lead at 4-1.

Texas has had some early struggles that the Jayhawks can take advantage of. The Longhorns have lost two conference games so far against Oklahoma State and Oklahoma both of which Jayhawks have beat. The Longhorns also lost these games on their home floor so KU coming in as the visitor gives them the upper hand.

KU has no problems coming back from deficits as we saw in the Florida game and last Monday against Oklahoma so it’s OK if they get down. The key in this game is to ignore the mis-matches in the paint against the Longhorns. Play the outside three-point game. It worked effectively against Oklahoma starting out 8-for-8, why can’t it work again? Free throws have also won KU many games: Georgetown and Utah. The Jayhawks have proven to make their free throws when it matters. Late in the game if the Longhorns need to foul and KU is automatic from the line, KU wins this game on the road and improves their conference record to 5-1 on the year.

NCAA Power Rankings: Duke and Iowa State Are Actually Playing Defense This Year http://kjhk.org/web/2015/01/21/ncaa-power-rankings-duke-and-iowa-state-are-actually-playing-defense-this-year/ http://kjhk.org/web/2015/01/21/ncaa-power-rankings-duke-and-iowa-state-are-actually-playing-defense-this-year/#comments Wed, 21 Jan 2015 17:37:49 +0000 http://kjhk.org/web/?p=32821 10. Maryland Terrapins Maryland is the best team in college basketball that you’ve never heard of. Truthfully, I went back and forth and back and forth between who I wanted to put at this spot, between Maryland, Kansas, and Utah. I ruled out Utah since they completely looked out-manned against Arizona on Saturday, and Kansas has looked completely out-manned on TWO separate occasions this season, and one of them was to NIT-bound Temple. So naturally, I picked Maryland. The Maryland resurgence is also led by a player you may have never heard of, and that’s Melo Trimble.

10. Maryland Terrapins

Maryland is the best team in college basketball that you’ve never heard of. Truthfully, I went back and forth and back and forth between who I wanted to put at this spot, between Maryland, Kansas, and Utah. I ruled out Utah since they completely looked out-manned against Arizona on Saturday, and Kansas has looked completely out-manned on TWO separate occasions this season, and one of them was to NIT-bound Temple. So naturally, I picked Maryland. The Maryland resurgence is also led by a player you may have never heard of, and that’s Melo Trimble. Trimble is essentially college basketball’s version of James Harden. He averages over 16 points per game on  just over 9 shot attempts (!). This is thanks to 138 free throw attempts this season, of which he is converting at a rate of 88%. Trimble has been so good, that I have legitimately started wondering if we could possible give Jahlil Okafor the player of the year award, and Trimble the freshman of the year. It won’t happen, but Trimble deserves tons of recognition. Throw in more known players in Jake Layman and Dez Wells, and the Terps have a great thing going. The Big 10 schedule won’t be very difficult on them, and by the time they play Wisconsin, the Badgers are likely to have Traevon Jackson back and healthy. But they do have some tough games coming up in Columbus against the Buckeyes, and in Iowa City against the Hawkeyes.

9. Iowa State Cyclones

The more Jameel McKay continues to get acclimated to things in Ames the better the ‘Clones are going to continue to get. I can’t say he’s incredibly skilled, but he’s always going to try harder than you. In Saturday night’s game against Kansas, McKay scored at least 6 points just because he beat a combination of Cliff Alexander, Jamari Traylor, or Landen Lucas down the floor. McKay also provides Fred Hoiberg with an appropriately sized big man, who can block shots, and is a pretty good rebounder. I think everyone on this planet would do a double take reading that. Here’s a fun fact: the last time Iowa State has had a player average more than 1 block per game was in 2010, Hoiberg’s first year as the Cyclone’s coach. It was Jamie Vanderbeken, who Hoiberg didn’t even recruit. Boy, does that man love three-point shooting or what? Anyway, McKay averages 2.7 blocks per game so far this season, and since he’s joined the Iowa State rotation on December 20th, the Cyclone’s are allowing just over 62 points per game, which is down from 67 on the entire season. Also, the normal porous defense of the Cyclones currently boasts a respectable defensive rating of 93.9, good for 65th in the country, which by Hoiberg standards, is elite defense. So yeah, I’m sold on them this season.

8. Louisville Cardinals

It’s pretty much been the same story for Louisville since the first couple weeks of the season. The Cardinals looked baffled in Saturday morning’s blowout loss to Duke, as Duke exaggerated a problem that has been there all season for Louisville, but they just can’t seem to fix. This is all no fault of Rick Pitino’s, either. On Saturday, and in Louisville’s other two losses to Kentucky and North Carolina, Montrez Harrell couldn’t get a good look at the basket. Terry Rozier has done a great job, and an even greater one when you consider he’s basically doing it by himself, but Wayne Blackshear and Chris Jones have been absolutely terrible shooting the ball this year. And while both players, Jones specifically, have been criticized for bad shot selection, they were getting open looks at the basket in both the Kentucky game, and the Duke game. Problem is, pretty much every guy on Louisville’s roster besides those four have no idea how to score the basketball. It’s so bad sometimes I’m not even sure they understand that the goal of the game is to put the ball into the basket. But Pitino still has them playing defense up there with the likes of Kentucky and Virginia, and Montrez Harrell is still one of the best player in the country. But if Blackshear and Jones don’t turn things around I’m not sure this team has much of a chance at making noise come March,

7. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

I can’t believe I’m actually writing about Notre Dame in this column! In all seriousness, I really don’t know what to think of this team. I actually really want to like them and think they’re great, but all offense, no defense teams really scare me. For example, they could only put up 56 in the game against Virginia last week, however, despite losing the game, I came away really impressed with the fact that the Irish stuck around against one of the elite teams in the country this year. The Jerian Grant/Pat Connaughton tandem is fantastic, and they’re also hotly contesting Gary Bell and Kevin Pangos for the “Holy Cow Those Guys STILL Play College Basketball?!?!” award. You also can’t watch a single Notre Dame game without one of the ESPN announcers talking about how Grant couldn’t stand watching Notre Dame lose so many close games last year while he was ineligible. So I guess he’s out for revenge or something. Regardless, he’s fantastic, he can shoot the ball, he draws fouls, and he is crazy athletic. Connaughton, on the other hand, woos defenders with his old man game, and as great as he has been, is the only Notre Dame rotation player shooting under 50% from the floor this season. That’s not an insult to him, but rather an awesome stat to show how good their offense really is. So yeah, expect next weeks showdown with Duke to have a final score of 156-153. Or something around there.

6. Arizona Wildcats

Until recently, Sean Miller started Gabe York to provide the Cats with spacing that they wouldn’t otherwise have had. But York suffered an ankle injury, hampering him to the point where Miller started Elliot Pitts over him, and now to the point where Miller actually starts his five best players, TJ McConnell, Stanley Johnson, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Brandon Ashley, and Kaleb Tarczewski. Thus teams just deploy a zone, and Arizona looks lost. That was the formula for their loss to Oregon State a couple weeks ago, and it’s going to be a problem all year since Gabe York, and maybe Elliot Pitts, are going to be their only reliable shooters. Stanley Johnson is shooting over 40% on the year, but that’s mainly due to a majority of his attempts being absolutely wide-open. The Wildcats are going to beat teams with their defense this year, but any team that plays a zone against them is going to have a legitimate shot at beating them.

5. Wisconsin Badgers

I’m convinced that in Wisconsin’s January 11th loss to Rutgers, the whole team was just trying to help out Frank Kaminsky in his player of the year campaign. The Badgers looked terrible, putting up only 62 points, to an awful team that will be locked in the Big 10’s cellar with teams like Northwestern and Penn State, and they also let them shoot well over 50% from the field. Keep in mind Rutgers is one of the worse offensive teams in college basketball (their offensive rating ranks 315th in the country, and their total points per game ranks 322nd). But of course, Kaminsky was absent from the lineup dealing with a concussion. In the following game against Nebraska, a significantly better team on both sides of the ball, they won with ease, and of course Kaminsky was back on the court. Things aren’t all great, as they will be without Traevon Jackson for about six weeks as he rehabs a broken foot, but Bronson Koenig should be able to do a good enough job in Jackson’s absence, and the Big 10 schedule isn’t tough enough for this to be a real concern yet. They play Iowa twice in the next week or so, but only play Indiana once. Their matchup with Maryland isn’t until Febuary 24th, and they don’t play Ohio State until the last game of the season, on March 8th. So take your time, Traevon. Get healthy.

4. Gonzaga Bulldogs

You hear it all the time, but this time it is said with 100% sincerity: Gonzaga is for real this season. I challenge anyone to give me a weakness that this team has. They’re experience (Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell), they have knock-down shooters (Kyle Wiltjer, Pangos, and Bell), they have post scorers (Przemek Karnowski, Domantas Sabonis), a 7-foot shot-blocker (Karnowski), fantastic rebounders (Karnowski, Sabonis), and depth (they bring Sabonis off the bench, along with Kyle Dranginis). This team is so well put together, I could go on and on. The ball never sticks, they shoot 53% from the field this year, and well over 40% from 3. People will keep up with the “BUT HOW MANY GAMES WOULD THEY WIN IN THE BIG 12/ACC?” argument, but it doesn’t matter. Their only loss is to Arizona, which was their first true road game this season, and it was also a game in which they had control of late in the second half, and I personally thought they looked like the better team. They may not lose another game until tournament time, because the WCC isn’t very good. But don’t expect that loss to be in the first two rounds this time. These guys are for real.

3. Duke Blue Devils

Just to be clear here, Duke’s two losses last week may have been a big hit on their ACC title chances, but it in no way worries me about their overall title chances. Especially after they got back on track with big wins over Louisville and Pittsburgh. And in absolutely shocking, breaking news, the Duke Blue Devils INSTITUTED A ZONE DEFENSE AGAINST LOUISVILLE LAST SATURDAY. Read that sentence again. Then read is three more times. Is that more or less believable than Fred Hoiberg having a legitimate big man that blocks shots and rebounds? More or less believable than the Kansas Jayhawks having two reliable, consistent point guards but no reliable, consistent big men? What is going on in college basketball this season? Look, Duke is not going to be an elite defensive team this year. But they haven’t had a defense this great decent since the 09-10 season, and they won a championship that year. And the fact that Coach K was actually willing to change things up and play a zone against a team that it was clearly necessary against is great. Justise Winslow might be one of the best perimeter defenders in the country, and Jahlil Okafor isn’t great, but he’s been blocking shots at a nice rate. Quinn Cook and Tyus Jones do a nice job pressuring the ball, and Amile Jefferson is usually in the right spots, even if sometimes he’s just too small to do anything about it. But the point is this team tries so hard on defense, something that last years team really didn’t do. They lost to Miami because Angel Rodriguez and Manu Lecomte couldn’t miss, and they lost to NC State because Trevor Lacey and Ralston Turner couldn’t miss. Usually, their elite offense can balance that out, but this time it couldn’t. Oh well. If I had to pick one team to beat Kentucky, it would be Duke. We’ll see how they look in their biggest week of the season next week, when they travel to both South Bend to play the Irish, and Charlottesville to play Virginia.

2. Virginia Cavaliers

Is Virginia the best team in the history of college basketball that a casual fan could routinely fall asleep while watching? Probably. The halftime scores of their past two games were 25-19, and 27-24. But don’t be fooled into thinking they’re a poor offensive team. They just play extremely, extremely, extremely slow, and most of that is thanks to London Perrantes controlling the tempo, slowly walking the ball up the floor, and never making stupid plays. Perrantes is that guy at the gym that everybody wants on their team, and you don’t really understand why. But for whatever reason, the dudes team can’t lose. Perrantes just does all the little things that not many people notice. The Cavaliers only turn the ball over an astounding 9 times a game. They shoot 48% from the field, good for 25th in the country, and 39% from the three-point line, good for 26th in the country. The sudden offensive greatness is led by Justin Anderson, who currently sits, percentage wise, as the best three-point shooter in the country, at just over 52%. Malcolm Brogdon was last years leading scorer, and is still doing the same things, and Anthony Gill has been a force inside. Mike Tobey should probably play more, and that leaves me wondering if Tony Bennett will tighten his rotation at some point since he’s playing about 10 guys, but who am I to question him? They aren’t losing, and they’re doing this in one of the best conferences in the country. The meat of their schedule is coming up, when they play Duke, North Carolina, and Louisville, all in a row. Brace yourself for those games.

1. Kentucky Wildcats

As good as Kentucky has been this year, the more I watch them play, the more vulnerable I think they are. My mindset coming into this year was that this team might have been a bit overrated. I was then proven wrong on that, as they steamrolled through a very difficult non-conference schedule. I then thought that there was no way any team would be Kentucky, and that they had an 100% chance of winning the title. I was again proven wrong, as they were taken to overtime in their first two SEC games. Oh, and those games were against Ole Miss and Texas A&M, two teams that probably won’t even make the tournament come March (though Ole Miss has a shot). They could still go undefeated in the SEC, but only because it isn’t very good. They aren’t a very good three-point shooting team, and look a little lost when teams throw zone defenses at them (where have we heard this before?). They’re still the favorite to win it all this year, but that is down from an 100% chance in my mind, to somewhere around a 50% chance, which is still an incredibly high number, especially when I say it in mid/late January. The best thing for the ‘Cats at this point is for Coach Calipari to simply just start playing his best players. He ditched the platoon system when Alex Poythress went down with an ACL injury, but if you ask me, he’s playing the Harrison twins too much, and Tyler Ullis and Karl-Anthony Towns not enough. His best lineup probably looks something like Ullis, Devin Booker, Aaron Harrison, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Willie Cauley-Stein. It will be interesting to see how he handles this the rest of the season, and how much, if at all, he shortens this rotation come March.
