KANSAS BEATS FLORIDA
Gators guards Walker and Kenny Boynton are streaky scorers who have had hot hands of late. Still, they don't scare anyone with their defense. They will have a hard time containing their backcourt counterparts Reed, Taylor and Brady Morningstar, and if a team can't handle those guys, it makes the task of corralling the Morris twins—6'9" Marcus and 6'10" Markieff—that much harder. Kansas is too fast, deep and tough to lose this one.
If both teams play to their potential, Kansas will win. The question, then, is whether Kansas will play to its potential. Under Self the Jayhawks are one of those teams that gets better the deeper it goes into the tournament. Once it reaches the grandest stage in Houston, I expect this team to rise to the occasion.
