Kansas Jayhawks

The Indiana Hoosiers face off with The Kansas Jayhawks in Honolulu, HI as part of the Free Armed Forces Classic Picks. Check out our free pick for this game.

Indiana Vs. Kansas

 

The Indiana Hoosier and Kansas Jayhawks joined up yesterday to tour many of the sites and memorial around Pearl Harbor. Now we'll see if any camaraderie built means anything when they collide on a basketball court for the first time since 1995, the Hoosiers and Jayhawks set to tip about 30 minutes after the Spartans and Wildcats finish up.

Betting KU means giving up 6½ with a nice round 150 for the scoreboard mark.

Maybe Indy head coach Tom Crean asked Kansas' Bill Self how best to go about replacing Yogi Ferrell, easily the biggest subtraction the Hoosiers suffered. Ferrell's load could be distributed among several players, at least early in the campaign, former Pitt guard Josh Newkirk taking over the point while scoring is picked up by guards Robert Johnson and James Blackmon, along with center Thomas Bryant.

Kansas lost its top two scorers, Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden Jr., but there's no reason to feel sorry for Self and the Jayhawks with the talent that is returning mixing with incoming freshmen, led by arguably the top recruit from the Class of 2016, Josh Jackson.

I'm going to bite the bullet with my second free college basketball pick and lay the points on the Jayhawks.
