Why Kansas can cover
Kansas suffered its first loss of the season in the title game of the Battle 4 Atlantis last week, but it bounced back with a dominant performance against Texas Southern on Monday. The Jayhawks cruised to a 33-point win, covering the 25.5-point spread in the process. They have also already recorded wins over then-No. 7 Duke, NC State and Wisconsin this season.
Freshman MJ Rice scored a career-high 19 points in 21 minutes off the bench against Texas Southern, while star wing Jalen Wilson had 22 points and six assists. Seton Hall has been struggling under first-year head coach Shaheen Holloway, losing to Oklahoma and Siena by a combined 18 points in its last two games. Second-leading scorer Dre Davis missed the Siena game due to a knee issue and could be sidelined again on Thursday.
Why Seton Hall can cover
Kansas is dealing with some injury issues of its own heading into this matchup. Starting guard Kevin McCullar Jr. sat out on Monday due to a pulled groin that he sustained in the loss to Tennessee, and he is expected to miss this game as well. He is the team's third-leading scorer (9.7) and second-leading rebounder (7.3).
Sophomore guard Bobby Pettiford Jr. (hamstring) is not going to be available until next week at the earliest, according to Kansas head coach Bill Self. Senior guard Al-Amir Dawes leads a balanced Seton Hall lineup with 11.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, while senior forward Tyrese Samuel is scoring 10.9 points and grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Pirates have gone unbeaten against the spread in their last six road games, and Kansas has only covered the spread once in its last five games overall.
