More About Kansas

Doug Ziefel: The Jayhawks showed throughout the regular season that they have the talent to be title contenders. Going 14-4 in the Big 12 is no easy task, but Kansas proved that it could handle its business night after night.

It also helps when you have the talent that the Jayhawks do.

It all starts with the leading scorer in the conference, Ochai Agbaji. He averaged almost 20 points per game and was a KenPom MVP in nine of 30 games. When Agbaji was not at his best, the veteran big man David McCormack picked up the slack. McCormack was the leading offensive rebounder in the Big 12 and became a matchup nightmare for any team that lacked the size to contend with him.

The duo of Agbaji and McCormack alone make Kansas tough to knock off.

More About Miami

Kody Malstrom: The ACC darling of the year. The Miami Hurricanes went from under the radar to exploding onto the scene and captivating the public’s hearts by taking down Duke and North Carolina in a span of 10 days.

Too bad it didn’t last, as Miami came crashing hard back to earth due to its poor defense. Like UNC, Miami relied on its offense to out-shoot opponents and pray to the high heavens that its defense could do enough to help it get the win.

Still, this is a formidable offense that possesses the power to shine. The Canes are led by Kameron McGusty — who averages 17.5 points per game — and Isaiah Wong — who hauls in another 15.5.

The Canes are unpredictable and own a suspect defense.
