Kansas lost the first night by a 68-66 decision at Duke in the Champions Classic but have been perfect since. Bill Self’s team captured the Maui Invitational title with victories over BYU and Dayton and also captured Colorado earlier this month.
As for Villanova, the Wildcats are still looking for their first win of the season signing. Jake Wright’s team was fired by the state of Ohio last month and fell near Baylor but remains unbeaten at home.
Villanova’s frontcourt will have his hands full against Kansas man Udoka Azubuike. The Big 12 player of the year averaged 14.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game and is one of the nation’s best keepers with Devon Dotson (19.6 points per game, 4.8 assists per game).
