Kansas Trying To Reassert Dominance At Allen Fieldhouse

It has been a wild year for college basketball but maybe no team has suffered more of a questionable start than Kansas. The Jayhawks have a startling lack of depth on their team and have already lost two games at Allen Fieldhouse through the first couple of months of the campaign. The Jayhawks will look to prove you can’t just walk into their house and steal a win when they host the No. 18-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • Texas Tech is 0-16 SU in its last 16 games against Kansas.
  • Kansas is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games as home favorite.
  • Texas Tech is 0-9 SU in its last 9 games on the road.

Since losing back-to-back games to Washington and Arizona State, Kansas is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS but has still shown inconsistencies. The offense has bounced between explosive and stagnant in that span with the Jayhawks failing to top 75 points twice but eclipsing 90 in the other two outings. The issue is simply the lack of bench scorers, as their five starters have accounted for nearly 90 percent of the offense.

Texas Tech looks like a legit contender in the Big 12 thanks to its defense, which is holding opponents to just 58.2 points per game and 36 percent shooting. The schedule has not been a cakewalk for Texas Tech either with the team holding its three ranked opponents to under 60 points per game. Offensively, the team centers around senior guard Keenan Evans but 10 players are averaging at least 13 minutes and 4.2 points per game.
