SB Nation's Nick Fasulo On Kansas, Missouri Heading Into Selection Sunday [Video]

In a recent SB Nation YouTube video, college basketball expert Nick Fasulo addressed both the Kansas Jayhawks and the Missouri Tigers as Selection Sunday draws closer. Fasulo jokingly warns college basketball fans to get used to Jayhawks coach Bill Self's hairline as the team could find themselves in the Final Four, giving them a lot of TV time.

He went on to say that the Jayhawks won't win if they don't play well (duh) because of the lack of playmakers to make up for broken offensive sets. Even though they beat Missouri by playing small, Fasulo says that the team will need big man Thomas Robinson in the post throughout the NCAA Tournament to have a shot at the Final Four.

Speaking of Mizzou, Fasulo was asked if first-year coach Frank Haith is ready for the primetime tournament play.

"He's ready," Fasulo said," because he has the personnel around him to make it work. That team is a well-oiled machine and he's done a great job of taking players he didn't recruit, who were used to a different system -- 40 minutes of Hell, under Mike Anderson -- and slow it down just a little bit. They can definitely play up-tempo basketball, but they do a really good job at picking their spots and at half-court defense."

Before I spoil the entire video, watch it for yourselves.
