Kansas’ High-Flying Offense Faces Stiff Test Vs Syracuse

Though Kansas does not have the huge five-star recruits that other blue bloods do, they have proven to be potentially the best team in the nation. The Jayhawks offense – led by a slew of upperclassmen – is averaging an absurd 94.5 points per game. However, Kansas will be facing an undefeated Syracuse Orange team that is allowing just 59.7 ppg on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Syracuse is 3-1 SU and ATS in its last 4 games against Kansas.
  • The total has gone OVER in 15 of Syracuse's last 19 games against teams with winning records.
  • Kansas is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games against the ACC.

Of course, Devonte’ Graham has cemented himself as the key player for Kansas after playing second fiddle last season. The senior is averaging 15.8 points, 8.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting 44.6 percent. However, the best player for Kansas this season might be Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, as the Ukrainian is averaging a team-high 18.2 points and shooting 56.4 percent from deep.

Syracuse’s defensive mentality has created a rather top-heavy offense. Tyus Battle is the offensive focal point but the trio of Battle, Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett have accounted for 64 percent of their points and 65 percent of their shots.
