The Big 12 Tournament gets underway tonight in Kansas City, and the Wildcats will try to get back to .500 in the opening matchup against the Frogs of Fort Worth. The nightcap will see Texas taking on their rivals from the panhandle, Texas Tech.

The games: Kansas State, holding the eighth seed, faces the ninth-seeded TCU Horned Frogs, while the Texas Longhorns, seeded seventh, face the tenth-seeded Texas Tech Red Raiders. K-State split their two games this year with the Frogs, while Texas swept Texas Tech.

Odds: The first game opened as a pick 'em, but K-State is now favored by two points. In the nightcap, Texas is favored by 11.

Tipoff: Wednesday, March 11 at 6:00pm CT, Sprint Center (18,972) in Kansas City, Missouri. Although the start time for Texas-Texas Tech is listed at 8:00pm, in reality it will probably begin at 8:30 or later; the official start time is 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Kansas State-TCU contest.

Tickets: $205-360 (covers both games).

Television: Both games air on ESPNU with Dave Flemming and Miles Simon.

Radio: The first game airs on the K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Stan Weber. The game will be available on Sirius 137/XM 199, featuring either the K-State crew or the TCU crew of Brian Estridge and John Denton (who are apparently back in the saddle). The second game is also available on Sirius/XM 84, with either the Texas broadcast team of Craig Way and Eddie Oran or the Texas Tech crew of Brian Hanni and Chris Level.

Online: Video streaming of both games is via WatchESPN:
