Kansas enters their Sweet 16 matchup against Maryland riding a 16 game winning streak Thursday. The Jayhawks have also gone a stellar 13-3 ATS during their winning streak, as the team has posted an average scoring margin of +14.3 points per game. Kansas will be facing a stout defense in Maryland, which has allowed just 66.3 points per game this season.
Kansas has relatively cruised through the first two rounds of March Madness, with the Jayhawks winning by 26 and 12 points respectively. The senior guidance of Perry Ellis has been a big factor for Kansas, as the forward has scored 21 points in both games in the NCAA Tournament while shooting a combined 17-for-24 from the field.
After a tight first round affair against South Dakota State, Maryland put up a better, but not perfect, performance against Hawaii in the Round of 32. Though the Terps scored 73 points they couldn’t buy a three if they won the lottery, as the team went an appalling 1-for-18 from beyond the arc against the Rainbow Warriors.
