The Kansas basketball program made its way to the Final Four by defeating the Duke Blue Devils in the Elite Eight last weekend. The Jayhawks had an impressive gameplan to get past Kansas, but they may have received some help from an unlikely source leading up to tip-off.
Leading up to their Final Four appearance, Kansas assistant coach Jerrance Howard took to social media to show off a scouting report that was made by his nine-year-old son.
According to Howard, his son, Jay Jay, decided to create the scouting report about the Blue Devils three months ago in an effort to impress his father and to help the Jayhawks avoid another loss to Duke. Surprisingly, the nine-year-old nailed the gameplan that led to Kansas’ success.
Well done, young man.
Check out the full scouting report below:
So about 3 months ago I was home watching film and doing my scouting report on another team, and Jay Jay asks if he could help. I said no but you should pick a good team that you know and have seen play before and write up your own scouting report. He picked Duke not knowing we would end up playing in a epic game to go to the final four. I promise you I can’t make this up!
Kansas is now set to face off against fellow No. 1 seed Villanova in their national semifinal on March 31.
Tip-off between the Jayhawks and Wildcats is set for 8:49 p.m. ET on TBS.
