As a player, Kim English saw plenty of Kansas as a member of the Missouri Tigers and he returns to Lawrence as a coach on Saturday in search of a signature upset for George Mason.

George Mason Patriots vs. Kansas Jayhawks (-19, 145)

(stats as of Friday morning)

The Patriots are giving up an offensive rebound on just 19 percent of opponents missed shots, which is ninth in the country, while Kansas is 88th in this category allowing 23.8 percent of misses to be rebounded.

The Jayhawks have also failed to force contested shots, ranking 176th in the country in opponents field goal shooting percentage and 191st in 2-point shooting percentage at 50 percent.

The key to George Mason’s success this far has been reliant on making 3-point shots, as they are 29th in the country in highest percentage of points that come from made 3-pointers at 40.2 percent.

With Kansas 116th in the country in 3-point shooting defense, allowing opponents to shoot 31.6 percent from the outside, the Patriots will present a tough test to Kansas on Saturday.

Pick: George Mason + 19
