A few stats to throw out to start: in the tournament, Kansas’ opponents have averaged 61 points per game on 35% shooting. UNC’s opponents have averaged 68 points on 38% shooting. If you’re upset about including a 49 point game from Saint Peter’s, remember they did drop 85 points on Kentucky. But regardless, both teams got where they are on defense. Kansas had the easier path, but has been purely clinical. UNC has been out-hustling every opponent. Don’t be surprised if the pressure and fatigue are a factor in this game and it starts very defensively. In these situations, teams tend to lean on what got them this far which is defense in both cases. I think this ends in the low 140’s, even less if Kansas starts to dominate the game.
