The Jayhawks and the Tar Heels will go head to head in a NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament game on Sunday, March 26th. The game will be held at the University of North Carolina’s (UNC) Smith Center in Chapel Hill, and tip off is scheduled for 6:09pm EST. Here’s what you need to know about the game.
The Jayhawks’ roster is loaded with experience, led by seniors Justin Wesbrooks, Devon Dotson and Udoka Azubuike. Marcus Garrett, David McCormack, Silvio De Sousa and Mitch Lightfoot are also back after significant roles last season.
But this team will look different than last year’s squad, which lost three starters from last year in Lagerald Vick, Dedric Lawson and Kaleb Wesson. In their place, the Jayhawks have added five-star recruit Jalen Wilson, as well as injury redshirts Isaiah Moss and Tristan Enaruna.
