Kansas Looks To Improve Shooting If Jayhawks Are To Punch Final Four Ticket

Sunday afternoon in St. Louis will be chalked full of storylines on and off the court as the North Carolina Tar Heels and Kansas Jayhawks do battle with a ticket to New Orleans and the Final Four on the line.

Maybe no bigger storyline will be bigger than the availability of North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall. Back-up Tar Heel point guard Stilman White filled in nicely against Ohio, dishing out six assists and not turning the ball over in 32 minutes. However the Kansas backcourt is another level above that of Ohio.

Marshall figures to give it a go on Sunday afternoon with the season on the line, and look for the Jayhawks to be gearing it up on the defensive end. KU has yet to allow more than 60 points in the NCAA tournament thus far.

The key for Kansas may be which Tyshawn Taylor shows up to play, as he and Thomas Robinson are just a combined 27-of-75 from the field so far in the NCAA tournament. As has been all season, the Jayhawks seemingly go as far at Taylor goes. If Taylor doesn't turn the ball over, it may mean the Jayhawks are headed for another Final Four.

With a game in the post that will feature the likes of Robinson and Jeff Withey against John Henson and Tyler Zeller, the one is going to be good.
