Injury Report: Kansas - (C) Udoka Azubuike (questionable - knee). No significant injuries for Pennsylvania

Our Prediction: Kansas has had a problem playing down to its competition most of the season, but the Jayhawks looked as good as they have all season last week in the Big 12 Tournament. They won all three games by double figures, covering in all three. Penn is a tough team, but the Quakers have struggled against top-level competition. They lost to Villanova, 90-62 back in November. I think Kansas continues its strong play and runs past Penn.
