Kansas basketball will take on the TCU Horned Frogs on Senior Night. Here’s what you need to know, including the game time, odds, stream, and a preview.
With Senior Night and the month of March upon us, we near the end of the regular season for Kansas basketball. The Jayhawks still have two games left though, and they could help determine the winner of the Big 12 this season.
After the Jayhawks beat Kansas State last Saturday, Baylor lost on the road to TCU which gave Kansas a one-game lead in the conference. If the Jayhawks win at least one of their next two games, they’ll be guaranteed a share of the conference championship. If they win both, they’ll win the conference outright with only one loss on the Big 12 season.
While some fans may think getting a win over TCU who’s 7-9 in conference play may be easy, it isn’t a given. TCU is coming off of a massive win over Baylor, so they aren’t an easy out even though the game is at Allen Fieldhouse.

The big question for this game revolves around big man Udoka Azubuike and his injury status. The seven-footer sprained his ankle in the Jayhawks’ previous game, and head coach Bill Self said that he was “questionable probably at best” on his Hawk Talk show.
With the game being senior night, this forces Self to make a decision on whether or not to play Azubuike and if so for how long.
If Azubuike doesn’t play or even if he does, still look for David McCormack to get an increase in minutes. The increase in playing time would actually be a good thing for McCormack, given he’ll likely be the team’s starting big man next season after Azubuike graduates.
Kansas basketball can claim the 2020 Big 12 title outright and finish the conference season 17-1 if they win these next two games. Not only that, but they’ll be riding high heading into the Big 12 Tournament and March Madness. It’s time to sprint to the finish.
