2017 NCAA Tournament Kansas vs. Purdue game preview
Kansas enter a familiar setting as the Jayhawks begin play in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Sprint Center has become a home away from home for Kansas in recent years, and the venue is sure to have a large pro-Jayhawks feel when Kansas tips off against Purdue on Thursday night. The Jayhawks were impressive in their first two games in the tournament, routing UC Davis and Michigan State to advance to another regional semifinal under coach Bill Self.
The results should give Kansas fans peace of mind after the Jayhawks had a quick exit in the Big 12 Tournament at the Sprint Center, where Kansas fell to TCU 85-82 on March 9. Given the location of the Midwest Region semifinal and final, and considering how well the Jayhawks played in their first two tournament games, Kansas should be considered a favorite to reach the Final Four.
Purdue, meanwhile, will try to serve as a roadblock. The Boilermakers beat Vermont and Iowa State to reach the Sweet 16, spoiling a potentially intriguing rematch between the Jayhawks and Cyclones in Kansas City, Mo.
Purdue will need a superior effort and some help to top the Jayhawks.
