I think Kansas will be able to play the game at a faster pace than Texas typically plays.
I don’t think Kansas will be able to play the game as fast as they would prefer.
I think both teams will shoot a hair below 50 eFG% from the field.
I think both teams will get to the free throw line about 20 times.
I think if Robinson, Chalmers, and Jackson take the bulk of those free throw attempts, Kansas will at least match Texas’ production at the line.
I think Daniel Gibson will score 19 points on 17 shots.
I think Mario Chalmers and Brandon Rush will combine for 12 three-point attempts, making 5.
I think both teams will get about 40% of their offensive rebound opportunities.
I think PJ Tucker gets, at minimum, 12 rebounds.
I think both teams will turn the ball over on just over 20% of their possessions.
I think point differential between Jeff Hawkins and AJ Abrams will be very close to the point differential between the two teams.
I think that PJ Tucker will present such a unique set of complications for Brandon Rush that Rush can play well and still be less effective than Tucker.
I think it’s unlikely that Kansas wins this game.
I think it’s less likely that the outcome of the game is decided with more than 30 seconds left on the clock.
I think the game will be close enough that a bad call could impact its outcome.
I think that Brandon Rush takes and misses Kansas’ final shot.
I think PJ Tucker gets the rebound, is fouled, and makes at least one free throw.
I think Kansas throws the ball away attempting a long inbounds pass.
I think Texas wins 71-68.
