A rough draft for the successfully navigating the South region of the NCAA tournament might feature two simple points in hitting the open shots and not turning the ball over.
That South region features, like Kansas, a half-dozen versatile and diverse rosters that could certainly capitalize on poor defensive body position, loose perimeter defense and quick triggers from the Jayhawks' guards.
Luckily, maybe, for Bill Self's team is that versatility of the South region. If KU reaches the Final Four for the second-straight season, they will not be staring a new system, style or roster in the face. Those potential Final Four matchups would likely feature a similar team to that of North Carolina, Michigan or Florida, thus making their 2013 NCAA Tournament blueprint rather simple.
