The Sooners are going to be in a lot of trouble if they can’t hit some shots from the outside against the Jayhawks on Saturday afternoon in the Phog. This is a team that shoots just 32.3 percent from beyond the arc, ranking 239th in the country. Kansas meanwhile, has a defense that forces you into a ton of tough shots, and scoring in the paint is virtually impossible against C Jeff Withey and this lengthy team. The Jayhawks rank first in the country in field goal percentage allowed at just 34.8 percent, and the end result is that teams are scoring just 59.1 points per game against them. The offense has struggled at times, but not generally at home. G Ben McLemore and the gang put up 97 against Iowa State, 89 against American, 87 against Richmond, and 89 against Belmont in recent history, and the only two home games that proved to challenge that point were a 69-point showing against a very stingy Temple team and a 61-point outing in a game where just nothing was falling for either side against Baylor. The Jayhawks don’t have to be remarkable offensively to cover this spread. They just have to be good enough, and they have to keep doing what they have been doing. This will be a big win in the Phog for the hosts.
