Preview: Kansas at Colorado

There's not a lot to say about this game. Colorado plays at an even faster pace than Kansas, scores fewer points per possession than every Big 12 team with the exception of Iowa State and turns the ball over more frequently than every Big 12 team with the exception of no one. They trail only Baylor in points allowed per possession and allow the highest eFG% in the conference. It's a question of by how much Kansas will win in the ninth Big 12 home game they get every year. I think it'll be about the same as in Lawrence. Kansas may not shoot as well but they'll rebound better. Colorado probably won't shoot as well, either, but they'll hold onto the ball a bit better.

Prediction: Kansas 94 Colorado 70
