Jayhawks arrive in Omaha for Sweet 16

Brownell, 49, whose contract goes through 2021, led the Tigers to a 25-9 record this season and the program's first Sweet 16 appearance in 21 years. Or should KU be favored by even more? Kansas is going to be a tough team to beat, however, I really like how Clemson has looked defensively as of late and as I think they'll be able to slow down the Jayhawks offense, I think taking the Tigers and the points is the play here. The Tigers later pushed their advantage to 41 points.

Clemson advanced by limiting Auburn to 25.8 percent shooting and points on just 22 of 70 possessions in an 84-53 second-round mismatch. New Mexico State had a nice following.

Aamir Simms has become well-educated in Clemson men's basketball history through the Tigers' NCAA tournament run.

However, despite the fact that Kansas enters nearly every season with national championship aspirations, it's been a full decade since the Jayhawks last cut down the nets in 2008, which marked the schools first title since 1988. Kansas led by a 31-26 margin at halftime and was able to hold off a late Pirates charge after taking a 71-63 lead with just 1:20 left in regulation. The Tigers are averaging 8.3 three-pointers per game on 36.8% shooting from beyond the arc.

Two days prior, the Jayhawks shot seven for 17 from long range against the Quakers and covered a 13-point spread.

If the 100km-wide core of Nora hits populated areas, roof and structural damage could be caused by winds gusting up to 195 km/h. Severe Tropical #CycloneNora is tracking south east across the northern Gulf of Carpentaria towards the Cape York Peninsula.

Self, of course, can say the same thing, though some roll their eyes since the Jayhawks' Big 12 dominance is reflected in 14 consecutive league championships.

Kansas coach Bill Self spoke to the media on Wednesday night and was very complimentary of the Tigers and shared that his basketball team is the healthiest it has been all season.

It's pretty simple. Have good guard play, knock down shots, and play solid defense. The Tigers may not win this game outright, but they are the smart bet here.

We all know, though, that Kansas is the heavy favorite.

Clemson is 0-4 SU and ATS in its last four games against the Big 12.
