Current Records: Kansas 19-3; Texas 17-6
What to Know
The #8 Kansas Jayhawks lost both of their matches to the #20 Texas Longhorns last season on scores of 59-84 and 72-75, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. Kansas and the Longhorns will face off in a Big 12 battle at 9 p.m. ET on Monday at Frank Erwin Special Events Center. After these two teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
Kansas took their contest against the Baylor Bears this past Saturday by a conclusive 83-59 score. The Jayhawks can attribute much of their success to forward Jalen Wilson, who had 15 points in addition to seven boards.
Meanwhile, everything went Texas’ way against the Iowa State Cyclones this past Saturday as they made off with a 63-41 victory. The top scorers for Texas were guard Andrew Jones (14 points) and guard Marcus Carr (14 points).
Barring any buzzer beaters, Kansas is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Their wins bumped the Jayhawks to 19-3 and the Longhorns to 17-6. With both Kansas and Texas swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.
