Kansas and head coach Bill Self look to add to their impressive NCAA Tournament resume as they take on USC on Monday night.
The Trojans have a likely top-five NBA Draft pick in freshman Evan Mobley, who helped lead a dominant defensive performance that saw USC hold Drake to 56 points and 29.4% shooting from the field.
Mobley had a 17-point, 11-rebound double-double with three blocks against Drake, and slowing him down will be priorities No. 1, 2, and 3 for a Kansas team that has an impressive defense as well.
The Jayhawks played their best basketball down the stretch of the season before a positive COVID-19 test knocked them out of the Big 12 Tournament. While the Jayhawks took care of business by getting a win in the first round against Eastern Washington, the Eagles kept the score much closer than expected (93-84).
Both the Jayhawks and the Trojans have failed to cover the spread in three of their past five games, and at the time of writing, the line for this game is quite tight as a pick ’em.
Let’s take a look at who has the PRO Report edge in this toss-up between USC and Kansas.
