Everything that is happening to Kansas should be expected given the way Virginia Commonwealth is playing. KU hasn't been pushed so far, and every top seed that wants to win a title has to win a game it shouldn't. If Kansas wins this game it will win the title. But neither is looking very good right now.
No. 11 Va Commonwealth 41
No. 1 Kansas 27 at the half
VCU is shooting 9-of-17 from 3. This is consistent with what the Rams have done all tourney long.
KU is shooting 2-of-12 from 3.
Kansas has 9 turnovers. VCU has 5 turnovers.
KU's guards are looking weak, which is where this team is vulnerable. The only two doing anything for Kansas are the Morris twins (20 points, 14 rebounds) but they have a combined 7 turnovers.
If KU can't guard and slow this pace down, this game is over.
