The Jayhawks have a great opportunity to pick up a road win and gain some momentum this Sunday before going into conference play, but it will not be easy. Stanford is 11-1 this season, and they currently have the best record in the Pac-12.

The Cardinal’s only loss came against #12 Butler on a neutral court, and by only one point too. Still, Stanford is unranked and only receiving votes probably due to how weak their schedule is relative to other teams.

Kansas basketball will have to stop center Oscar da Silva, who had a big game against San Diego. The junior put up 19 points, 11 rebounds, and five steals, while his teammate Tyrell Terry scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds.

The good news for Kansas basketball is that it sounds like Marcus Garrett will be good to go this week after suffering an ankle injury last week against Villanova.

Garrett is an invaluable member of the Jayhawks due to his incredible ability on the defensive end, and his absence after leaving the game in the first half against Nova played a significant role in Kansas’ loss.

Another Jayhawk looking to have a better game than last week is Devon Dotson. He was 5-of-15 from the floor, including 4-of-7 from the line. It was an off game for Dotson, and there’s no reason to think that he won’t come up big for Kansas this Sunday against Stanford.

This isn’t a “must-win game, but it almost feels like it is. Losing two road games back-to-back would be a rotten way to end the decade and go into conference play. Plus, a win on the road against Stanford shouldn’t be an issue for this team if they truly have national championship ambitions
