Full Preview: KU hoops: Five things to know about Milwaukee

Kansas basketball shouldn’t have a problem beating fledgling Milwaukee at home later tonight. The Panthers have lost three of their last four, dropping them to 5-4 in head coach Pat Baldwin‘s third season.

The Panthers were defeated on the road by Drake 56-53 in their most recent game. DeAndre Abram led Milwaukee with 12 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He also pulled down seven rebounds in the close loss.

The Jayhawks got a big win last Saturday night against #20 Colorado. Kansas dominated the Buffaloes from the opening tip, winning the game 72-58. Ochai Agbaji led the Jayhawks with 20 points on the night including an excellent night shooting from behind the three-point line.

The key for Kansas basketball against the Panthers will be to stay focused.

Milwaukee isn’t a good team, but this season has shown time and time again that the better team on paper isn’t always the better team on the court. So far, the Jayhawks have “shown up” to every game they’ve played this season, and there’s no reason to think tonight will be any different.

Kansas basketball will also need to take advantage of free throws tonight against the Panthers. According to kenpom.com, Milwaukee has one of the worst defensive free throw rates in the country, which means the Jayhawks will have an opportunity to work on their 67.3% free throw percentage.

The bottom line is that Kansas basketball’s goal against Milwaukee should be to cover the enormous spread. Getting the win shouldn’t be in question, so it’s all about improving and getting ready for Villanova later this month.
