For What It's Worth: January 15th
For What it’s Worth on this cold January 15th--- Thirteen baskets-- fourteen turnovers, that’s a telling stat for Baylor. Need another? Kansas blocked as many shots as BU made in the 61-44 blowout on Big Monday. Senior center Jeff Withey ‘only’ had three of his team’s 13 blocks, but just his presence makes Kansas a better defensive club. When you have a 7’0” shot blocker behind you, it allows perimeter defenders to take more chances. The best case scenario is creating turnovers, but even if a guy gets by someone outside they still have Withey to deal with. When Kansas is focused, as they clearly were last night, they can do things like holding a team that scores 80 a game to 44 points on 23 percent shooting. What a pleasure to see.
