Kansas Final Four opponent: Jayhawks will take on Villanova in the Final Four
Next week, Bill Self and Jay Wright will face off in the Final Four and people can’t wait for this matchup. Self and Wright are two of the most respected coaches out there. For Kansas, the team’s powerful performance in the final 20 minutes of action against Miami was quite impressive. People are going to be talking about it for a while.
Miami had a chance to pull off another huge upset and send the last No. 1 seed of the tournament home. Instead, Self must have delivered an unreal speech at halftime to get his guys focused on the task at hand.
You’ve got to give plenty of credit to the Kansas defense for its performance. After allowing 35 points in the first half, the Jayhawks were all over Miami in the second half, holding them to only 15 points. Now, the Jayhawks will look to keep things rocking against Villanova in the Final Four. That could be a showdown to remember.
