FREE COLLEGE BASKETBALL PICK SYRACUSE ORANGE VS. KANSAS JAYHAWKS
The Kansas Jayhawks and the Syracuse Orange will clash in the Hoophall Miami Invitational where the Jayhawks are heavily favored.
The Kansas Jayhawks are ranked 2nd in the country in the college basketball AP rankings and have some of the best players in college basketball. The Kansas Jayhawks have multiple players that are considered to be first-round picks and next year’s NBA draft. Their top scorer Sviatoslav Mtkhailiuk is going to be a lottery pick next year and is one of the best forwards in basketball. The 20-year-old from Cherkasy, Ukraine has also been dependable in the paint, averaging four rebounds a game. Kansas also has one of the best centers in the nation in Udoka Azubuike, the seven foot tall center from Delta Nigeria weighs 280 lb and leads the team in rebounds with an average of 6.7 rebounds per game and is second in scoring on the team with an average of 16 points per game. The Jayhawks also have Devonte Graham and Lagerald Vick who averaged more than 15 points per game and combined average more than 11 rebounds per game. Other than the outstanding talent I think the main thing that makes Kansas a Powerhouse is their ability to play for a long time, they don’t call many players to come off the bench, and three of them averaged more than 30 minutes played per game. Kansas is going to be a force to be reckoned with this season and will be making a deep run in the college basketball tournament.
