Sweet 16: Kansas (1) vs. Richmond (12)

Southwest Region: Kansas Jayhawks (1) vs. Richmond Spiders (12) Fri. March 25, 2011 7:27 p.m. EST

Ever since the beginning of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the Kansas Jayhawks (1) have been on upset watch as Bill Self and company just haven’t been able to shake that devastating loss to Northern Iowa in the second round last year. Even though that loss will always be in the back of the Jayhawks minds moving forward, the memory of that upset will never be more fresh in their minds than on this Friday night when they take on the Richmond Spiders (12) in the Sweet 16.

There is no question that the Richmond Spiders (12) have played brilliantly this season and throughout the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the Kansas Jayhawks (1) will not be taking it easy on this possible Cinderella story as the last thing they want to do is get beaten by a much lesser opponent when they are so close to getting back to the Final Four.

As of right now, the Kansas Jayhawks (1) have been given the edge and for good reason as I really can’t see this Richmond Spiders (12) team competing with Bill Self’s squad, especially inside the paint with the twin towers.

The Jayhawks are favored by -11 points and will most likely cover that spread and advance to the Elite Eight.
