Kansas Misses Super Freshman — Exits Dance Early

If you do not know who Joel Embiid is, than it is annoying your bracket is ahead of mine… And just about everyone is ahead of my bracket this year. So yeah, annoying.

Kansas star Freshman Joel Embiid is a 7 footer that has averaged over 11 points and 8 rebounds a game. He also changes the way teams were able to attack the heart of the Jayhawk defense. Most people that look for a big man to compare his game to bring up the name  Hakeem Olajuwon. Yeah, he’s not bad, not bad at all.  Anyway, Mr. Embiid missed the opening weekend with a back injury and now may never actually see the court in an NCAA Tournament game as most expect he would be a lottery pick this offseason.

Stanford exploited the missing big man, scoring 31 of their 60 points from their #4 and #5 position. They also held the advantage in rebounding margin and only had 2 shots blocked all game (Embiid’s avg is 2.6 bpg).

It is now Stanford vs Dayton playing for a spot in the Elite Eight. If nothing else, Florida has to be feeling really good about their chances of making it to the final four.
