Quick scout: The biggest fear for KU against Purdue

The biggest fear for the Kansas men’s baskeatball team shouldn’t be Caleb Swanigan, but Purdue’s three-pointers. Iowa State made 18 of 34 and won at Allen Fieldhouse. Indiana made 15 of 31 and won the season opener. Teams that shoot a lot of outside shots against the Jayhawks typically have had strong point-per-possession totals.

KU will be on guard in Sweet 16 matchup against Purdue

Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan, a 6-foot-9, 250-pound sophomore, and 7-foot-2, 290-pound junior Isaac Haas have been getting a lot of attention this week, making some wonder if KU’s guards — a group that includes starters Josh Jackson, Big 12 player of the year Frank Mason, Devonté Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk — will carry a chip on their shoulders into the game. The Midwest Regional semifinal at the Sprint Center will tip off around 8:39 p.m. Thursday.
