Of course, even with some injuries, Duke is still Duke. There’s a high-scoring backcourt led by All-American junior Grayson Allen, who is averaging more than 20 points per game. Along with Allen is emerging sophomore Luke Kennard, senior Matt Jones and freshman point guard Frank Jackson.
Self and senior guard Frank Mason both admitted that part of the Jayhawks’ struggles against the three-point shot was that Indiana shot out of its mind and hit some very tough shots and incredibly clutch times. But that did not eliminate the fact that both believed the Jayhawks could defend better and Self said, yet again, that they better Tuesday night against No. 1 Duke in New York City.
A win erases all of the disappointment from the loss to the Hoosiers. A loss would drop Kansas to 0-2 for the first time since the 1972-73 season and, no doubt, bring with it some frustration for a program and fan base that expects excellence.
"The thing that impresses me most," Self said, "is just how aggressive they are, especially whether it be freedom offensively to shoot the ball, but (also) to drive it and put pressure on you."
Duke will have to play intelligently, avoid foul trouble, and hope Kansas can’t exploit its size advantage.
Upon reviewing the game footage, Beaty said Monday on the Big 12 coaches media teleconference the redshirt freshman played a "pretty efficient game" in his first career start.
