Duke Blue Devils vs. Kansas Jayhawks Odds, Analysis, March Madness Betting Pick”

"And so, hey, we're in this game". Clemson's season ended with a 25-10 record.

Malik Newman led the Jayhawks (30-7) with 17 points in a one-time runaway that got much closer and, quite frankly, won't mean much to KU fans if their team can't finish the job in the Midwest Region final Sunday.

Who is lost: The departures are significant for Clemson, with Donte Grantham, Gabe DeVoe and Mark Donnal all moving on.

Texas Tech is headed to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history.

After Mikal Bridges gave Villanova the lead with a 3-pointer, Omari Spellman produced an emphatic dunk on James Bolden.

Tyus Battle had a team-high 19 points for the Orange, but he went 1-for-2 from the line in the closing seconds before Gary Trent Jr. hit two free throws to cap the Blue Devils' scoring.

In the game's final minutes, after Azubuike had fouled out, his value became even clearer as Clemson threatened a stunning comeback that ultimately fell short. KU led Clemson 40-27 at halftime. He scored a game-high 31 points in the losing effort while also leading Clemson in assists with three.

Clemson came into Friday's game with one of the top interior defenses in the country, but like most of the teams Kansas has faced, it did not have an effective counter for a spry "Doke" who establishes position in the paint. Sure, you had large contingents who made the lengthy trips to watch Villanova, West Virginia, Purdue and Texas Tech play for a spot in the Elite 8.

At 4:03 remaining and the Tigers down by 13, they would make a strong run to get back into the game. "We've been here and we just had to send a statement from the jump and go out and play Kansas basketball, being aggressive".

Manila hotel fire leaves at least three dead, two trapped
The death toll had been reduced from four to three, said Johnny Yu, chief of the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office. Deadly blazes break out regularly in the Philippines, particularly in slum areas where there are virtually no safety standards.

Kansas coughed up most of a 20-point, second-half lead before holding off No. 5 Clemson, 80-76 in the Midwest Region at Omaha. "They just want me to handle the ball, make plays and make the team better", Newman said back in 2016. Getting to the Final Four has been a different story - and the Jayhawks are on the doorstep once again.

Clemson attempted to put a dent in its deficit before the break but a five-point Jayhawk possession dashed those hopes.

"In an unforgettable NCAA tournament that has delivered unprecedented upsets (UMBC stole our hearts) and unbelievable last-shot drama (Loyola-Chicago has kept them beating), we finally have a main event", Trotter wrote. But the Boilermakers allowed the Red Raiders 17 second-chance points. The Jayhawks got out to a 9-2 run to open the second half thanks to three straight three pointers, drawing a timeout by Clemson coach Brad Brownell and giving Kansas a lead it wouldn't squander away. In a game where Gonzaga should have dominated, the Seminoles did them in.

Texas Tech trailed by as many as seven points in the first half. The closest they would get is four points.

The Clemson-Kansas victor plays in the regional final Sunday against the victor of Friday night's other semifinal between second-seeded Duke and 11th-seeded Syracuse.

Wendell Carter Jr. finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds as he aanchored Duke inside the teeth of the Cuse zone.

Purdue came in ranked second nationally in 3-point percentage and connected on 7 of 18 for the game. "We started out playing as well offensively as we have in a long time".

Here are the Clemson vs Kansas basketball game details including the start time and live stream info.

As a top seed the last two seasons, Kansas flopped a game shy of the Final Four.
