Gonzaga vs Kansas prediction

Kansas has been shaky over the last month, with losses in 4 of its last 6 games, and it did everything it could to lose to Samford in the first round. The Jayhawks are vulnerable without their best player in Kevin McCullar who hasn’t played since March 9 due to a knee injury. Gonzaga has covered 4 of its last 5 games, and the Bulldogs have been one of the best offensive teams in college basketball over the last month. This feels like two teams heading in different directions. Kansas is in dog fights every night, while Gonzaga is playing its best ball of the season. I’ll lay the points with Gonzaga.
