Kansas Vs. Davidson: Game Preview, TV Info And More

The Jayhawks will play their first game after Tyshawn Taylor injured his knee against Ohio State.

In a rematch of a 2008 Elite Eight Game, the No. 11 Kansas Jayhawks host the Davidson Wildcats Monday.

Without Stephen Curry, Davidson has not made an NCAA tournament since their run to the brink of the Final Four in 2008, but they are still one of the premier mid-major programs in the country.

The Wildcats return four of their top five leading scorers from an 18-15 team, with 6'7 sophomore forward De'Mon Brooks, 6'4 junior guard J.P. Kuhlman, 6'10 junior forward Jake Cohen and 6'3 junior guard Nik Cochran all averaging in double digits.

Kansas is coming off an impressive 78-67 win over No. 2 Ohio State last weekend, although they lost senior guard Tyshawn Taylor to a knee injury that is expected to keep him out at least three weeks.

The Jayhawks will need junior guard Elijah Johnson to emerge in Taylor's absence and complement junior forward Thomas Robinson with an outside scoring presence.

The 8:00 PM game will be televised nationally on ESPNU.
