Podcast: Kansas should (and probably will) shoot more 3s this year.

I’m joined by Steve Fetch to break down the Pitt State game and look ahead to the basketball season.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Purdue vs Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Basketball is here! Basketball is here!...

I could go on and on rejoicing about the fact that real basketball action is only a week away, but instead, Fetch and I decided to break down what we saw to help get you all ready for the #4 Kansas Jayhawks this season. We also threw in a little football, soccer, and volleyball talk.

Topics discussed:

-Surprise performances from the Pitt State game.

-Four Factors Primer.

-Kansas' Four Factors against Pitt State.

-Talking Efficiency Margin and where Kansas will end up.

-Bill Self's defensive focus.

-What's the right mix of shot types?

-Fetch's Top 5

-Where would Wichita State come in the top 25?

-Twitter Q&A (via @NathanHorst27): Will Mitch Lightfoot be comparable to Withey or Aldrich in his KU career?

-Baylor preview.

-Fetch's Soccer Minute

-Weekend wrapup

Just a note: We recorded this about 2 hours before Kansas finally fell to TCU 4-2 in a shootout in the first round of the Big 12 tournament.
