As part of the Battle of Atlantis, the second-ranked Kansas Jayhawks will take on the 5-0 Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Thanksgiving Day.
While comprised mainly of young talent, led by superstar Andrew Wiggins, the Jayhawks have been a tough-go this season so far, going all the way back to the comeback win they had over Duke a few weeks ago.
Recently, head coach Bill Self admitted that while they’ve had their successes on the offensive end, getting these youths to play some defense has been difficult at times, but he hopes to get them there soon:
“It’s an entire team of young’uns,” Self said, “and it’s going to be frustrating from time to time, but hopefully it’ll be very rewarding at the end.”
They’d better hope they have their games together defensively when they take the court against a tough, undefeated Wake Forest team that’s averaged over 85 points per game so far. Aside from Duke, this may be Kansas’ toughest test yet.
