Kansas has been steamrolling teams ever since its win over Kentucky, and the Allen Fieldhouse is obviously one of the tougher venues to compete in let alone win. However, the Toledo Rockets can shoot the ball fairly well and have some nice scoring depth. The Rockets have also played two road games already, taking Cornell down to the wire and hanging around with Syracuse. This could be a game where Toledo knocks down some outside shots and at least keeps the game somewhat respectable. I'll take a shot with the points here.
