The Jayhawks secured a top seed with the Big 12 title.
Kansas Jayhawks (29-5)
Big 12 Conference Tournament Champions
The Jayhawks do just about everything well. They can score, shoot at a high percentage, rebound and distribute the ball. They can beat you in a thousand different ways.
They have the best freshman guard in the country. Ben McLemore can shoot and is absolutely lethal from behind the three-point line.
Jeff Withey is an absolutely dominant force on the interior. At 7'0", he adds over 13 points per game, but his real value is on the boards, averaging 8.4 per game, and on defense, where he is a blocking machine. He ranks third in the nation in blocks per game.
The Jayhawks also play extremely tough team defense, limiting their opponents to an NCAA-best 35.9 percent shooting from the field.
Kansas' biggest weakness, and the thing that gets the team in the most trouble, is turnovers. It's a statistic that makes you think that the Jayhawks are, at times, their own worst enemy.
Few teams in the country can compete with the Jayhawks when they protect the ball, but that has been a problem at times.
As a team, the Jayhawks rank near the bottom of the NCAA in turnovers per game, with 14, and that's a killer at this time of the year.
