The Kansas Jayhawks will face the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. (CT) in Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks are nearly unbeatable in Allen Fieldhouse, they're 16-0 and favored by double digits. There are a lot of reasons to think KU basketball will win this game.
SB Nation's Rock Chalk Talk has an extensive preview of the game and comes up with this prediction:
It's Nebraska and it's in Allen Fieldhouse. It's easier to get worried about road games because it seems every team elevates their play in those situations, but in Lawrence a team like Nebraska could end up getting run off the floor in the first 20 minutes.
Doc Sadler will try to make it ugly but while the Huskers boast a solid defense, so do the Jayhawks. At the end of the day the fact that Kansas has a competitive offense to go along with that is going to be too much for the Corn to overcome in Lawrence. Throw in the fact that this is a parting shot for Kansas and their fans and it should be a game the Jayhawks win fairly easily. Of course, that's not exactly the Jayhawk calling card this year.
I'd vote for the former -- Nebraska getting run off the court in 20 minutes. Kansas has made things interesting lately but I think they find their groove against Nebraska and run away with a victory moving to 17-0.
