Kansas basketball has their first road test of the Big 12 season today against Iowa State. Here’s what you need to know, including game time, odds, streaming info, and more.
Kansas basketball travels today to take on a reeling Iowa State team that’s lost three of their last four games. It should amount to a road win for the Jayhawks, but Hilton Coliseum isn’t an easy place to play. Kansas will have must work to eliminate turnovers, and shoot better from the field.
Last week against West Virginia, the Jayhawks came away with a 60-53 victory to begin conference play. It was a gritty win, but the Jayhawks didn’t look great on offense for their second game in a row.
Against the Mountaineers, Kansas shot 40% from the field, and an abysmal 18% from behind the three-point line. The Jayhawks had a similar, but not as bad performance on offense in their game prior to West Virginia against Stanford.

The Cyclones are in a bit of a downward spiral right now. They’ve lost three out of their last four games, including a home loss to Florida A&M and an overtime road loss against TCU to begin Big 12 play.
As long as Kansas can stop Tyrese Haliburton, the Jayhawks should give themselves a very good chance for winning. Haliburton is leading the Cyclones in points per game with 17.7, assists per game with 7.9, and steals per game with 2.6. It’ll probably be up to either Marcus Garrett or Devon Dotson to guard Haliburton, but both are more than capable.
