This is one of those where you can argue each side with a lot of validity. Obviously the overall situation weighs in Ok State's favor but there is a slight motivational angle for Kansas too since they are right on the cusp of a #1 NCAA tournament seed. With Mich State and Duke having potential losses remaining on their regular season schedule, KU could sneak in if they avoid the slip up. The loss of Le'Bryan Nash is huge in this contest fundamentally as KU on paper should win the rebounding battle by 15+. Also, without Nash, Page becomes a marked man and OSU with a seven man rotation that has 4 freshman and a sophomore might not be deep enough with scorers to help. Jayhawks C Jeff Withey is one guy who should be fresh as he only spent 9 minutes on the floor Saturday due to foul trouble and a rolled ankle (it seems fine for tonight). Line looks to be in the right spot now as my power ratings have KU a 7.5 point favorite if OSU was at full strength. The current number at -9 shows it is 1 1/2 points heavy due to the absence of Nash. Tough game to call, but could see both sides of reasoning.
