WICHITA — Seton Hall probably could've predicted who its second-round opponent would be when the brackets came out on Selection Sunday.
The Jayhawks, though, needed to wait until the conclusion of Thursday's matchup to have a real idea. Since then, they've gotten to work on the scouting report.
"We're pretty familiar with (Seton Hall)," Devonte' Graham said. "They've got a good squad."
Graham and the Jayhawks will attempt to advance past the first weekend of the Big 12 tournament for the third straight year. To do so, they'll have to get past a team that mirrors another the Jayhawks have had some trouble with during Graham's tenure at KU.
"They're probably like a West Virginia type," Graham said. "We're going to have to come out mentally prepared and physically ready to go to war."
Following a 77-69 loss to Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday, West Virginia coach Bob Huggins talked about the big free throw disparity between the two teams, the difference between last year's loss in Lawrence and his message to his team afterward: "It wasn't your fault."
