Yesterday didn’t go as well as we were hoping, as the Gonzaga Bulldogs raced out to a 102-90 win. Today, the Kansas Jayhawks take on a much less intimidating Saint Joseph’s Hawks team. Is Kansas going to take out their frustration on today’s opponent? Or are the defensive issues more of a problem than we anticipated?
Our crew gets together to tell you what to expect today. Pick your favorite prediction, or give one of your own in the comments below!
Kyle_Davis21: St. Joseph’s has a lot of their roster back from last year, but that team last year went 6-26 on the season and finished last in the A-10. This is a bounce-back game for the Jayhawks to get some confidence up. Kansas 76, St. Joseph’s 62
Fizzle406: This one should be easy. Kansas 82, St Joseph 63
Mike.Plank: St. Joe’s was picked to finish 12th in the 14-team Atlantic-10 conference’s preseason media poll. This one better not be close. Kansas 80, St. Joe’s 60.
dnoll5: No idea. Hope all are healthy as smaller conferences have had a real challenge with this virus in football. I hope that same problem doesn’t arise in hoops. Kansas will win. KU 88, St. Joseph’s 64.
David: St. Joe’s used to be a really good program, but I guess it’s been a minute. I won’t pretend to be an expert on their squad, but I don’t see any reason why we’d struggle much in this one. Kansas 78, St. Joe’s 59
Andy: After watching Kansas go toe-to-toe with a super talented (and much more polished) Gonzaga team for 32 minutes, I’m having trouble seeing Kansas struggle in this one. They are much more talented, and are going to be pissed after the way that game ended yesterday. Kansas 87, St. Joseph’s 62
