Kansas Jayhawks 2014 NCCA bracket

Kansas comes into this tourney having lost one of their best players in Joel Embiid, a 7 foot tall center that is the Big 12 defensive player of the year. Embiid will be out until at least the second week of the tournament with a stress fracture in his lower back that he suffered on March 1st. Kansas has lost 3 games in March after Embiid went down and his absence was a real blow to a defense that was already shaky.

This was never more evident than in the Big 12 tourny semifinal where Kansas lost to Iowa State 94-83, due in large part to Iowa State’s Georges Niang being able to run amok in the paint with the 7 foot Embiid not in the game.

“Joel not being in there, he could probably guard Niang better,” Kansas coach Bill Self said, “but I think it was more a collection of everybody rather than just one individual.”

Kansas does indeed have talent, and they will have to come together as a team in order to advance deep into the March Madness tournament because their bracket is treacherous with teams like Florida, who are the overall favourite at online betting sites to win the 2014 tournament outright.

Kansas will need scoring to overcome their defensive woes and will be leaning on Canadian Andrew Wiggins for offense. Wiggins averaged 17.4 points-per-game throughout the season, but came alive in the Big 12 tournament averaging 31 per game, which coincided with the absence of Joel Embiid.

If Andrew Wiggins stepping up in the Big 12 tourny is any indication that he enjoys the spotlight, then we will be seeing the freshman superstar bring awareness to Canadian basketball by making the highlight reels across America. It is clear that because of injuries Kansas will be allowing more points per game than we are used to seeing, but we will also see our Canadian export Andrew Wiggins shine.
