NCAAB - US Sports: Kansas 'locked in' for UNC showdown
Forward Jalen Wilson says Kansas are ready to take on North Carolina in Monday's Championship Game and he is confident all his teammates are fully focused on the task in hand.
Kansas can be backed at 1.47 to win in the Money Line and North Carolina are 2.75.
Wilson talks up focus
The Jayhawks are preparing for their sixth game in the space of 19 days ahead of their meeting with UNC.
This will be the final game in the NCAA for a number of players on both teams. Over the course of the NCAA tournament the players may have had to consider managing niggling injuries, or conserving energy for the next game, but none of that matters now and Wilson says everyone is simply focused on beating the Tar Heels and claiming the title.

Wilson happy with squad mood
"Knowing this is the national championship, it wouldn't matter what's going on with me, I would be 100% tomorrow," said Wilson, via KUsports. "I just think that everyone's so dialled in and locked in on what we need to do, there's just no excuses."
Coach Bill Self, who led Kansas to the title in 2008, says his team are fully focused on Monday's Championship Game against North Carolina after seeing off Villanova with a convincing 81-65 win in the Final Four.
"We were obviously happy," he said. "I don't think we spent a lot of energy in the locker room after the win, though. I think we were thinking, at least the best you can, 'Next play.' Last night was great for us, as it was for Carolina also. But it's time to forget about that and get focused on what's next."
