The Kansas vs. Texas live stream online and TV game will cap off a doubleheader of 2016 NCAA basketball games on Monday evening. Right now, Kansas has moved back into the top spot after Villanova was upset by Xavier last week and the Musketeers were then upset by Seton Hall. That gives a Jayhawks team with a 25-4 overall and 13-3 conference record a stay at the top spot, but for how long? They’ll take on a No. 23 Longhorns team on the road that seems to be improving at just the right time in the season. The 2016 NCAA basketball live streaming and televised coverage arrives through the ESPN networks on Monday night.
On Feb. 28 the Fox Sports site reported that a win by the Kansas Jayhawks tonight in Texas will help them clinch an outright Big 12 title. That would make for the team’s eighth conference title in 12 years now, an impressive feat which attests to the quality of talent and coaching that has been a part of their teams over the years. Once again ranked at No. 1, Perry Ellis and company moved to the top spot with a 67-58 win over Texas Tech this past weekend, while the new No. 1 Villanova was upset. As of right now, projections have Kansas as the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament too.
They’ll take on a Texas Longhorns team that was ranked No. 25 last week and has moved up a few spots to No. 23 for tonight’s home game. They enter this game off a big upset of their own as they managed to defeat No. 3 Oklahoma 76-63 this past weekend. Isaiah Taylor had 18 points and Texas went on a 25-5 run to close out the game en route to a home victory. Oklahoma had been leading 40-37 at the half, but in the second half the Longhorns outscored their opponents 39-23. Texas won the battle of the boards 43-31 and also shot 44.6 percent for the game. On the season, they are 19-10 overall and third in the Big 12 with a 19-10 record, making them one of seven teams currently projected to enter the NCAA Tournament in March.
The Jayhawks will find themselves as four-point favorites on the road for tonight’s game. For the season, Kansas has been 19-9-1 against the spread overall or 8-4-0 on the road. The Longhorns are 14-15-0 overall, 8-9 ATS at home but have the interesting stat of being 8-3 against the spread as underdogs. On the moneyline, they are priced at -170 with the Texas Longhorns as +150 underdogs. The over/under points total is set at 141 points for the complete game.
