KU does not have a lot to worry about in its first round game against Boston University. Their name does start with B and they have won their last 11 games, but there's no killer in them. A few interesting points:
- Their best win was against Vermont (2x). - They lost to Maryland Baltimore-County, which is not a community college but missed a good chance to be one. - They are one of the worst teams in America at scoring inside the three point line. - They are among the shorter teams in America. - They average only 9.9 assists / game. - They are among the slowest teams in America.
BU's best bet is to slow the game way down and shoot well from deep, but realistically that won't be enough. They played three teams in the top 80 all year and lost them by an average of 22 or so.
They may hang around if they hit early, but they don't have the D to prevent KU from scoring at will. KU should win by around 25, but might be favored by 28 to 30.
