#1 Kansas vs. #1 Memphis


Kansas: The key to the Jayhawks winning their fifth NCAA title in college basketball will be whether or not they can continue to play defense at the same level they played against North Carolina. They held the Tar Heels to a season-low 35.8 percent shooting from the field and blitzed them with 2 incredible runs. “We will need to have our best defensive performance,” Kansas guard Russell Robinson said. Insiders also wonder if the Jayhawks will have enough energy after such an emotional victory. “(Saturday night) was hard, no doubt about that, but I’m not worried,” Kansas center Sasha Kaun said. “We are going to relax today to get ready for this. That is the nice thing about knowing it’s the last game. There is no excuse to hold anything back.”

Kansas is 8-4 ATS during its 12-game winning streak.
The UNDER is 5-0 in Kansas' last 5 games overall.

Key Injuries - Reserve G Rodrick Stewart (2.8 ppg; dislocated knee) is OUT.

PROJECTED SCORE: 72


Memphis (-2, O/U 146.5): Despite ranking 239th out of 241 teams nationally in free-throw shooting during the regular season, the Tigers have been dynamite from the charity stripe in their last 3 games, hitting 81 percent (76-of-94). They are trying to become the first team since the 1990 UNLV Runnin' Rebels to win the national championship from a non-power conference. “Of all the teams in this tournament, this is huge for the city of Memphis,” Memphis head coach John Calipari said. “The city of Memphis is in the Bible belt, a Godly place, a charitable place. But we’ve got a lot of poverty. We’ve got a lot of things going on. This, in Memphis, will mean more.”

Memphis is 5-7 ATS during its 12-game winning streak.
Memphis is 1-7 ATS in its last 8 Monday games.
The OVER is 5-0 in Memphis' last 5 games overall.
The UNDER is 7-1 in Memphis' last 8 games vs. Big 12 (OVER happened in Elite 8 vs. Texas).

Key Injuries - Reserve G Andre Allen (4 ppg; suspension) is OUT.

PROJECTED SCORE: 74
