Lack of Depth Killing Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks are missing depth from their lineup. Kevin McCullar, Hunter Dickinson, K.J. Adams, Johnny Furphy, and Dajuan Harris can only do so much. McCullar, Dickinson and Adams combine for more than 50 points for the Jayhawks. In the loss to Oklahoma, Furphy was the top scorer, with 13.

Dickinson has come over from Michigan and been good, but has struggled shooting the basketball. The big man was just 2 for 12 from the field in the loss. The previous games he went 7 for 19 against Baylor and 8 of 18 against Kansas State. The Jayhawks need him to shoot the basketball more effectively.

The Jayhawks will head back home and host Texas a week from Saturday, and then stay home and host Brigham Young to finish February. Once March arrives, the Jayhawks are on the road at Baylor, before hosting Kansas State, and then finishing up on the road at the Houston Cougars.

Sooners Happy to be Home

Kansas Tops Oklahoma

The Kansas Jayhawks are going to get back on track in this game. The big difference for Kansas in this game is the addition of Kevin McCulluar. He missed the game against Baylor last Saturday and also Texas Tech on Monday. He is a massive need for the Jayhawks, as they lack depth.

Kansas is much better, and will win this game with him. We are going to take Kansas +105 on the moneyline over Oklahoma on Saturday!
