I will be busy working on my paper this morning, so the game thread goes up now. Use the comments to discuss our game and anything else of interest on the college basketball scene today.
Also, if you need some reading to keep you busy until the 3 p.m. tipoff, check these out. From the KC Star, K-State aims for top of Big 12 race, noting that it's entirely possible the two conference leaders after today will be K-State and the 'beaks. Over in Topeka, we get the sentiment I expressed in the scouting report below, hoping for a good home court advantage against A&M. And finally, the Wichita Eagle checks in with a good read on Blake Young and how he's filling his role on the team. I have not discussed Young much lately, but he has been playing solid defense and knocking down a few timely shots.
That's it until 3 p.m.
