While Siena isn’t your typical cupcake - they’re a top-100 team per KenPom - it may seem like it for the Jayhawks after opening the season with the likes of Indiana and Duke. This is a guarantee “Host Game” as part of the CBE Classic; regardless of the outcome, the Jayhawks will advance to Kansas City.
Look for KU to run and gun vs the Saints and hopefully get their starters some rest in the second half. A high scoring game with lots of possessions is usually good for the more talented team, so hopefully KU can pull away late.
