Last week was a rough one for the Kansas basketball team. They dropped two games to Pac-12 schools even though both were played in friendly confines for KU.
The Kansas Jayhawks look to bounce back from those losses against Washington and Arizona State when Kansas takes the court against former Big 8 / Big 12 Conference member, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, in Lincoln in the Shelter Insurance Shootout.
Nebraska has lost two of their last three, dropping games to Michigan State and Creighton, so beating Kansas on the road would be a big bounce back for them. This game will be the first true road test for the Jayhawks The Kansas Jayhawks head to Lincoln to take on Nebraska in a game that suddenly has more importance than we thought it could have before the year started.
Kansas is ranked #13 in the AP Poll and #12 in the Coaches Poll and is coming off a pair of losses to Pac 12 schools in Washington and Arizona State. Nebraska is 7-4 in the sixth season for Tim Miles. They are coming off a 75-65 loss at Creighton.
The Cornhuskers switch everything on the perimeter on defense and have done a great job of limiting 3-point attempts for their opponents so far this season. What that often means is that teams have to put the ball on the deck and drive to the rim, where Nebraska has a tendency to foul. Nebraska has committed 216 fouls (20 per game) compared to just 135 and 15 per game for Kansas. Those five extra fouls could play a big factor in this one in a couple of different ways.
NU coach Tim Miles no doubt expects the Jayhawks to get their share of 3-point opportunities because of KU’s terrific ball movement, spread-out offense and high number of good 3-point shooters. But the one thing Miles and the Huskers can’t afford is to give up 10 or 12 3-pointers and send the Jayhawks to the free throw line off of drives to the basket.
The Jayhawks are shooting .410 from 3-point range so far this season, with 100 makes in 244 attempts. Nebraska, meanwhile has given up just 58 3-point makes in 11 games for an average of 5.3 per outing.
