The Kansas Jayhawks and the Miami Hurricanes are gearing up to face off in the Elite Eight. Here’s everything you need to know about the matchup.
After beating Texas Southern, Creighton, and Providence, the Kansas Jayhawks have moved on to an Elite Eight matchup against the Miami Hurricanes.
The game has the possibility of being absolutely thrilling as the Jayhawks, who have one of college basketball’s best programs, will be facing off against the Hurricanes, who haven’t really had much men’s basketball success historically.
That said, the Hurricanes have made it to the Elite Eight for the first time after beating the USC Trojans, Auburn Tigers, and Iowa State Cyclones. Miami may not be the traditional college basketball powerhouse that Kansas is, but the Hurricanes have shown they belong in the Elite Eight just as much as the Jayhawks do.
Here’s everything you could need to keep up with the Elite Eight matchup between the Jayhawks and Hurricanes.
Kansas Jayhawks vs. Miami Hurricanes game time
Kansas and Miami will meet up at 2:20 p.m ET on Sunday, March 27. The game is being held at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. CBS will have a live broadcast for the game, but folks interested in checking the game out online will be able to find a live stream available at fubo.tv.
Kansas Jayhawks vs. Miami Hurricanes prediction
The Jayhawks have been led by Ochai Agbaji. Throughout the season, Agbaji has averaged an impressive 18.9 points per game. However, Agbaji hasn’t played all that great recently and he only scored five points in Kansas’ win over Providence. The Jayhawks will almost certainly need more from him in the Elite Eight.
Meanwhile, Miami’s Kameron McGusty is having a stellar season as Miami’s leading scorer. So far, McGusty leads the Hurricanes as he scores 17.8 points per game. Against Iowa State, McGusty put up 27 points and was able to seemingly score at will. If the Hurricanes are able to come out on top, it’s because McGusty has a big day.
This game should be a close one and it should be a blast to keep up with. That said, don’t be shocked if the Jayhawks are able to come out on top.
Prediction: Kansas wins 75-71
