How Will Kansas Basketball's Schedule Hurt/Help Them In NCAA Tournament?

Interesting stuff from the guys at the KC Star's Upon Further Review.

Will Kansas basketball's schedule end up helping or hurting the Jayhawks?

They beat Memphis on a neutral court when the Tigers were ranked 14th, as well as Arizona on a neutral court when they weren't ranked. They beat up on most Big 12 opponents on the road outside of Colorado (four point win) and Kansas State (16 point loss).

So in some ways, this Mizzou game is pretty huge for Kansas. It's a ranked opponent in a true road game. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it's a rivalry and Mizzou's shown they're pretty darn good at home.

KU is 28-2 and clearly one of, if not the most talented team in the country, but how will their schedule affect their run in March? Interesting question and one I hadn't thought much about. 

Despite the lack of star opponents on the road, Kansas, in my mind, is still an impressive team. Two losses in 30 games means you're doing something right, whether you're on the road or not.
