Date: Friday, March 21, 2014

Time: 4:10PM EST

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Scottrade Center (St. Louis, MO)

Prediction: Despite posting the same record in 2013-2014, these two teams have very different ceilings. Kansas has aspirations of playing for a national title, while Eastern Kentucky would surely be content with one big-time upset. Realistically, however, this one isn't in the cards. Sure, KU star freshman Joel Embiid is out with a back injury, but the Jayhawks' other first-year stud Andrew Wiggins is not. As much as casual fans would love to see EKU, which has won seven straight games, give these guys a run for their money, don't expect it. Rock Chalk.
