Kansas vs Duke Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview NCAA Elite Eight 2018 Full HD
It hasn’t been easy, but the Jayhawks are still alive.
That’s not always a given in the tournament for Bill Self’s always-talented teams.
They had to fight to get past Seton Hall in the second round, and they took their foot off the gas to get by Clemson, but again, they’re here.
It was a balanced attack that got Kansas past the Tigers – with six players scoring nine points or more – helped by a huge day from three and a great overall day from the field. If the Jayhawks can keep hitting over 45% from beyond the arc, they’re all but unstoppable.
Date: Sunday, March 25
Game Time: 5:05 pm ET
Venue: CenturyLink Center Omaha, Omaha, NE
Syracuse was a dangerous team to deal with. It knew how to play next-level D, it had a coach as strong as Duke’s, it had more size, and it was able to play like it had nothing to lose.
Don’t get caught up in the 69-65 final score. That was a war.
It helped that the Orange missed some key free throws, but the Blue Devils locked down from three – Syracuse hit just 4-of-13 – and they managed to come up with enough offensive rebounds to stay in control of the game.
Duke couldn’t hit from three, either, connecting on just 5-of-26, but it closed out strong.
