Purdue is certainly going to have their work cut out for them to have any chance to upend Kansas in the sweet-16. The Jayhawks were arguably the best team of the first weekend, winning their two games by a combined 58 points.

That included a demolition of Tom Izzo’s Michigan State.

Add in the fact that this game is being played in Kansas City, which happens to be an hour’s drive from Kansas’ campus and you start to get an idea of the immensity of this challenge.

But Purdue which won the Big-Ten with a 27-7 record were no slouch themselves and the fact that they came out ahead of a Wisconsin team which just beat overall #1 Villanova, shows the quality of the conference.

Purdue has Caleb Swanigan as the focal point of the offense and he is a national player of the year candidate after averaging 18.5 PPG and 12.6 RPG and leading the nation with 28 double-doubles. They were 12th in the nation with a +12.6 point scoring differential (12.6) and 13th in rebounding margin (7.0).

Meanwhile Kansas has four dangerous scorers led by Frank Mason III who is also a player of the year candidate after scoring 20.8 PPG.

Look out if the three-point shooting heats up for Kansas. Their 40.6% shooting percentage from long-range was fifth best in the country.

But this game features a lot of high end talent and should go down to the wire.

BetOnline has the Kansas listed as 5-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 157.
