Texas-Arlington: The Mavericks are coming off a 73-56 loss to Texas Tech on Dec. 22. UTA is 1-5 on the road. The Mavericks force 17.9 turnovers per game and are outrebounding opponents by 2.2. UTA's top scorer, LaMarcus Reed III, comes off the bench with 15.5 points per game. Sophomore center Jordan Reves is averaging 9.0 points and 4.9 rebounds and also comes off the bench.

Kansas: Selby will make his first start tonight, and Johnson and Robinson will make their first starts of the season in place of Tyshawn Taylor and Marcus Morris, respectively. Taylor will come off the bench because he's missed five practices while being grounded in New Jersey because of inclement weather. KU coach Bill Self said Taylor was supposed to arrive in Lawrence on Tuesday night. Morris will not start as punishment for being ejected against Cal due to throwing an elbow above the shoulder.
