I should let you know that without Wayne, we are predicted to lose 4 out of 5 times on a game simulation by an average score of 79-72.
How will the Jayhawks handle the loss of Simien, who leads the team with 17.4 points and 12 rebounds per game? While Keith Langford (15.3 points per game) and J.R. Giddens (10.5) can pick up the scoring, the entire team must crash the boards to make up for the loss of Simien's rebounding. Junior walk-on Christian Moody has been a pleasant surprise, starting all eight games, shooting 62.5 percent from the field and averaging 5.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. But with Simien out, there will be more pressure on the 6-8 Moody to be strong inside while staying out of foul trouble.
