2012 NCAA Final Four: Kansas Led By Thomas Robinson, Tyshawn Taylor

It's a surprise to exactly nobody that both Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor played well in Kansas' upset victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels in the Elite 8. Robinson and Taylor have been Kansas' top two players this year -- and they'll need to continue to show up and play as well as they can if Kansas is going to claim the 2012 national title.

Robinson is not only Kansas' top scorer this year, but he leads the team in rebounding as well. Robinson is averaging 17.7 points per game and 11.8 rebounds per game.

Meanwhile, Taylor is is second on the team in scoring, averaging 16.7 points per game. Taylor also leads Kansas in assists, averaging 4.7 assists per game.

Without question, Bill Self needs both Robinson and Taylor to be at their best on Saturday when the Jayhawks take on the Ohio State Buckeyes. If they aren't, Kansas fans might be saying goodnight to their Jayhawks for this season.
