The No. 8 Kansas Jayhawks are cruising through their non-conference schedule and will play a pseudo home game at the T-Mobile Center in nearby Kansas City tonight when facing the UTEP Miners.
Kansas (6-1) was able to go out east this past Friday and score a big 95-75 victory over St. John’s at UBS Arena in Long Island, NY. The Jayhawks took control of this one early and never relinquished it, routing the Red Storm with a blowout win. Christian Braun was the MVP of the game for KU, dropping 31 points, seven rebounds, and four assists in the win.
UTEP (4-3) has been up and down so far this season and suffered a down on Friday with a heartbreaking 72-69 loss to nearby rival New Mexico State. Aggies guard Sir’Jabari Rice ended up burying the game-winning three with two seconds left to put NMSU on top. UTEP got a 19-point effort out of Souley Boum.

Kansas has done well for itself this season when playing opponents ranked 150th or lower in KenPom and this should be no different here. They’ll get an extra charge playing a pseudo home game in a big arena in Kansas City, so they should be able to cover with ease.
