Kansas vs Iowa State Preview

Kansas (25-8 overall, 12-6 in conference play) won the Big 12 Tournament a season ago.

After splitting their regular season matchups with West Virginia, the Jayhawks topped the Mountaineers 88-74 in the semifinals behind a game-high 24 points from junior big man Dedric Lawson.

Freshman guard Quentin Grimes went 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the first half, when he scored 16 of his 18 points. He also added eight rebounds, four assists, and four steals before sitting with a cramp with six minutes remaining.

“He just got a cramp. So he’s fine,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said, according to The Kansas City Star. “I guess he needs to drink a lot of water and he should be fine. He shot the ball ridiculously well (5 of 5 threes first half; 5 of 8 from three for game and 6 of 13 overall) the first half and there was absolutely no hesitation. He was so confident. Second half his looks were good.

“The last one he didn’t get close because I think he cramped in his shot. It’s a weapon we desperately need and certainly something that … we need a guy to catch fire like that that can carry us a four- or five-minute stretch. If it weren’t for him over a four- or five-minute stretch, West Virginia controlled the first half. We ended up going up eight primarily because of Quentin.”

Grimes scored 10 points during a 16-4 run to close the first half.

The Cyclones crushed Kansas at home in their first meeting, then fell by four at Allen Fieldhouse. They narrowly bested top-seeded Kansas State 63-59 in the semifinals, their second straight win after closing the regular season with three consecutive losses to finish conference play 9-9 (22-11 overall).

“We got back to competing in practice, just working hard and going at each other,” Iowa State forward Michael Jacobson said, according to the Associated Press. “I mean, to be honest, sometimes you have to hit rock-bottom and start building back up, and I think that’s what has happened to us.”

The junior grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds to go with eight points, a pair of assists, a block, and a steal.

Senior guard Marial Shayok led all participants with 21 points on 5-of-12 shooting. In the last two minutes, he hit a game-tying 3-pointer, another deep ball to take the lead, and a pair of free throws to ice things with seconds remaining.

“I had all the confidence in the world, despite missing a bunch of shots in the second half,” Shayok said, per AP. “I just kept my confidence. This team has my back and the coaches have my back.”
