The Manhattan Jaspers and Kansas Jayhawks face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at Allen Fieldhouse.
Hunter Dickinson is A Problem
Hunter Dickinson was a problem with the Michigan Wolverines, he might even be a bigger problem with the Kansas Jayhawks. In the first game the Jayhawks faced off against NC Central, and they were able to secure a 99-56 victory. Hunter Dickson had quite the game finishing with 21 points, eight assists, and five rebounds. Some forget how good of a passer he is and he’s going to be key if the want to win another National Championship. Kevin McCullar Jr had a strong game putting up 22 points, six rebounds and five assists. Kansas shot 69.6 percent from the field and 56.5 percent from behind the three point line.
Manhattan Opens Up the Season with Win
Manhattan opened up the season against Bryant on the road, and they were able to secure the 61-59 victory. Manhattan scored 35 points in the first half and then the defense locked down in the second half on the way to the two point victory. Daniel Rouzan had a strong game finishing with 16 points and two rebounds. Manhattan had three different players that scored at least 10 points and in this game it’s going to need to be even better. Guys from the bench are going to have to really step up or this is going to be a long game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Manhattan won the first game, but only beating Bryant by two points, isn’t anything to write home about. Look for the Jayhawks offense to have no issue running up the score, and that is going to be the difference here. Manhattan doesn’t have the offense to keep up and this is going to be a blowout victory. Back the Jayhawks to win this game and cover the spread.
