Kansas Jayhawks Preview

Kansas is coming off a victory over the Oklahoma Sooners, which was closer than it would have liked it to have been, 63-59.

The 10-2 Kansas Jayhawks have been phenomenal on defense this season. In their 10 wins this season, the Jayhawks have only allowed 61.6 points a game.

If they can continue to remain disciplined on the defensive side of the ball against the Oklahoma State Cowboys and keep them under 60 points, they will move to 4-1 in a competitive Big 12 Conference.

Key Player - Jalen Wilson

Jalen Wilson is the key player for the Kansas Jayhawks. The starting guard has had a great freshman campaign, averaging 14.7 points per game, but he was extremely sloppy in the Oklahoma Sooners' victory. Wilson had a game-high seven turnovers.

The freshman guard will need better focus against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. He could get away with his poor decision-making over the lesser-talented Sooners, but will not be as fortunate against the 8-3 Cowboys.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off a 16-point win over the Kansas State Wildcats.

The Cowboys shot an impressive 56.3% from the field and assisted on 16 of their 27 made field goals.

If Oklahoma State continues to move the ball at a fast pace and shot at the same high efficiency it did against the Wildcats, it will have a chance at upsetting the Kansas Jayhawks.

Key Player - Cade Cunnigham

Cade Cunningham is the key player for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The freshman guard is projected to be the first overall draft pick in this year's NBA draft.

In Cunningham's previous outing over the Kansas State Wildcats, he went just one for three in 31 minutes of play.

If the Cowboys are going to upset the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, Cunningham will need to play at an NBA level.

Kansas vs Oklahoma State Prediction

The Kansas Jayhawks will make a statement on Tuesday night and blow out their in-conference rival, the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

The swarming Jayhawks' defense will hold the Cowboys' offense under 60 points and prevent Cade Cunningham from getting comfortable. Expect Jalen Wilson to be the best player on the court come Tuesday night.
