Kansas vs Seton Hall

Kansas will come into this game offered at 30-1 odds to win the 2023 NCAA Men's Basketball Championhip.

Seton Hall, competitive in recent years, have gotten off to a rough start.  They fell to Siena Sunday night, 60-55.

Seton Hall (4-3) started the past week strong versus Wagner then went on to beat Memphis by a point courtesy of Tyrese Samuel's buzzer-beater.  They lost by 13 points to Oklahoma ahead of the Sienna loss.

There is one bright spot. Seton Hall hadn't lost a Feast Week ledger since the 2016-17 season and that team would go on and make it into the NCAA Tournament later that year.
