NCAA Basketball Action247 Insider: Tuesday, Dec. 21, 2021
This week we have some big rivalry games on tap as we near the holiday. Conference play is going to be starting up in full swing soon, and teams are looking to get their last bit of non-conference resume-boosting in.
This should be a really good week of basketball as quite a few games have the potential to be very exciting. Look for some upsets to happen as teams start to look forward on their schedule.
Below, we will take a look at Kansas Jayhawks vs Colorado Buffaloes this upcoming week and break down the matchup and who has the edge coming into the game.
The 8-1 Kansas Jayhawks vs the 8-3 Colorado Buffaloes
The Kansas Jayhawks and the Colorado Buffaloes meet in a game that could elicit some surprises for us on Tuesday. The Jayhawks are 8-1 on the year so far and ranked #7 in the country. The Buffaloes are 8-3 so far this season and are having a very good year thus far.
Both of these teams have played some really good competition this year, with Colorado really filling up their schedule with high major and mid-major programs. Kansas is one of the highest-scoring teams in the country as they score 86.4 points a game while Colorado scores 72.0 points a game.
Both teams have a player that will really affect the game if they are playing well. Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji is scoring 22.4 points a game this year for the Jayhawks. Colorado forward Jabari Walker is scoring 14.5 points a game and also grabbing 8.8 rebounds a game.
Look for these two guys to be huge assets to their team in this one. I would lean Kansas here just because of their scoring ability.
