Oklahoma State is more than just Marcus Smart and Kansas may find that out the hard way. Markel Brown has first-round ability and LeBryan Nash has a shot to be an NBA player, which means Kansas will have to match at every spot on the floor. With Smart going for the Cowboys, expect Wiggins to take some time guarding him, with Selden getting the task as well. Smart's ability to get in the lane and finish will certainly be tested with Embiid patrolling the paint. This is as close as Smart will get to playing in an NBA game with NBA talent before he gets into the league. If he comes with another one of his big-game performances like he's been having lately, he's firmly back in the top-five mix.
