Get your dates arranged, plans assembled. This Saturday will be a big one. After the Jayhawks somehow escaped the enclosed jaws of defeat Tuesday Night, in Lubbock. Kansas is now comfortably in the drivers seat en route to a monumental Saturday crash course with the Texas Longhorns in Allen Fieldhouse.
Before Kansas can put the stick shift in cruise control. They have to acknowledge the goals needed to be attained for a rematch victory. The first meeting in Austin was a wash on the effort level, resulting in getting out rebounded , out hustled, and most importantly outmatched at every asset of the game.
With any chances on winning the Big XII again. It will be mandatory for the Jayhawks to enforce an overwhelming amount of energy and fortitude Saturday Night to the game. Kansas slipped by Lubbock with a late game shot by Wiggins. Yet, that really wasn't the main point of issue, being drawn from last night's game. Kansas should have put the game away much early in the 2nd Half. No excuses for an inferior team to once again catch up from a 9-10 point deficit. To then grab the lead and hide, throughout the end of the game.
It was a road for that matter, and all Big XII road games as we all know are tough to depict and compare to a typical "home warming" game amongst the Allen Fieldhouse con-finds. So, this game should be a big one. Marked down by most players and fans. As it should be, a win over Texas will not only dampen the dry mouths of refinance against the Longhorns. But more importantly, almost clinch for sure a piece of Conference hardware yet again. 3 game lead with 4 games to go on schedule. Would seem like a for sure clincher in Big 12 race.
If the game in Lubbock isn't a blue print of how this befuddled team looks at times is true. Kansas is in for another dogfight Saturday. Being the only saving grace is Kansas has posted an 11-2 record with a 2 game threshold hindering on top of the the conference summit, without playing their best game yet.
