Everything you need to know about the Kansas vs. Michigan State online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.
The Jayhawks, for once, don’t have a standout freshman to take away shots from Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden Jr., so now it’s their time to shine for Bill Self’s squad. But they’ll have a tough time going up against yet another talented team coached by Tom Izzo. Michigan State senior Denzel Valentine looks like the real deal this season coming off a near triple-double in the opening game.
Kansas has won the last 11 regular-season titles in the Big 12 and is returning four starters from last season’s team, which went 27-9 but was upset by Wichita State in the round of 32 in the tournament.
Michigan State was a No. 7 seed in the tourney, but Izzo worked his magic to get the Spartans to the Final Four, where they lost 81-61 to Duke. So, basically, it took the national champion Blue Devils to knock out the Spartans.

Kansas is going to score … a lot. Ellis and Selden will lead the charge against the Spartans, who let opponents shoot 33.2 percent from three last year. Valentine is going to limit the damage with an all-around performance, but the 6-foot-5 guard won’t do enough to notch a triple-double —which the Spartans would definitely need to beat the Jayhawks. Freshman Deyonta Davis will do work for MSU on the boards, but in the end he’ll be topped by Kansas’ more experienced front court. The Jayhawks will make one three too many for the Spartans’ liking.
