The Kansas Jayhawks got a huge win against TCU on Saturday, and now they look to keep pace with a home game against the Iowa State Cyclones. Can KU avoid another puzzling loss on what has been an up and down season?
Mike.Plank: Well I guess I’ll go first. I could just play the revenge angle, but that’s too easy. Instead I’ll offer some actual analysis. Iowa State lost to Missouri. Missouri sucks. Therefore, Iowa State sucks. Chalk this up as a big home win. Kansas 95, Iowa State 78.
dnoll5: I like Mike’s line of thinking. To add to that, Iowa State has lost all three conference games (K-State, Texas, Oklahoma State) by a combined score of 261 to 232, and by most definitions, two of those three teams aren’t that great. I know that stat means nothing, but it soothes me and makes me forget about the idea of KU losing back to back games at Allen Fieldhouse which is terrifying. But luckily, I don’t think that’s going to happen. Kansas 100, ISU 70.
Fizzle406: Not too worried about this one. The Hawkeyes are 0-5 in Big 10 play and haven’t looked too good lately. Fran McCaffery has a young squad this year and they might be dangerous down the road but I think KU will easily win the Big 12/Big 10 Challenge this year. Kansas 98, Hawkeyes 70
Andy Mitts: I want to say this will be an easy win, but I’ve seen too many games that should have been easy wins that didn’t turn out that way. However KU wins as Dok makes up for a disappointing game against TCU, and in the post game presser, Self announces that not only are Preston and De Sousa available immediately, but KU is guaranteed to have no injuries and shoot exactly 47% from 3 from in each game for the rest of the season. Kansas 94, Iowa State 73.
