The Kansas Jayhawks have their final major non-conference game tonight, down in Tempe against the No. 18 Arizona State Sun Devils.
So far, so good for Bill Self’s team.
KU remains without big men Udoka Azubuike, who is recovering from an ankle injury, and Silvio De Sousa, whose eligibility is being looked into by the NCAA.
The team is undefeated, going with a four-guard lineup with Dedric Lawson in the middle. At the half tonight, the Jayhawks lead 39-31.
ESPN’s Basketball Power Index gives the Kansas Jayhawks a very good chance of finishing this one off.
BPI has KU with an 81.4-percent win probability.
Lawson has been dominant for the Jayhawks, leading all scorers with 18 points, and a game high eight rebounds.
Arizona State does have a 10-2 advantage in bench scoring against a KU team that has struggled with depth a bit.
The second half should be underway soon on ESPN2.
