Kansas will be a -7.5 to -8 point favorite versus Providence in this Sweet 16 game.

Ochai Agbaji was the Big 12's player of the year and helped his Jayhawks win the Big 12 Tournament entering this year's tournament.

“I'm just blessed to be in this position, but I give it back to my teammates," said Agbaji, the fifth player in history to win the regular-season player of the year award and the tournament’s top honor. "I couldn't have done it without them.”

Agbaji scored 16 points, including a couple clinching foul shots with just over a minute left, to lift the Jayhawks (27-6) past the plucky Red Raiders (25-9).

They followed that one up with a tournament victory against Texas Southern, 83-56.

Remy Martin had 15 points and Christian Braun 14 to pace five Jayhawks scoring in double figures.

Against ranked opponents, Kansas is just 2-8 on the season. 

Al Durham had 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists and Jared Bynum made three big free throws with 29.9 seconds left as Providence snapped the longest winning streak in the country by beating South Dakota State 66-57 Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
