A resounding win over former coach Roy Williams on Sunday propelled the Kansas Jayhawks into the Sweet 16. Their opponent will be a Michigan team that boasts one of the scariest offenses KU has seen all year.
The Wolverines thrive on three-point shooting, an unwelcome fact for Kansas after they came within inches of two losses to Iowa State’s long-range gunners. Add in Player of the Year candidate Trey Burke to lead the Michigan charge, and Bill Self’s boys are in for as tough a fight as they’ve had in 2012-13.
Of course, Kansas is a pretty intimidating foe in its own right, and Ben McLemore and company are more than capable of taking down the Wolverines with a good performance next Friday. Herein, a five-step plan for the Jayhawks to defeat the Maize and Blue and advance to the Elite Eight.
