The Cats continue Former Coaches Week, welcoming Bob Huggins (and Tex Winter) back to Manhattan.

I'd pay good money for Bob to show up in a garish mustard-colored suit today.

Ahearn: Tournament Thursday

Remember that today is the 50th anniversary celebration for th1964 Final Four squad.

K-State is 25-13 all-time in games involving Bob Huggins, so a win today would make it an even two out of three. That's something, right? This is the second game in a row the Wildcats will face a former coach. Hmm.

West Virginia suffers from the same problem as the Cats this year, only even more pronounced. The 'Eers have exactly no seniors on the roster, and 10 underclassmen. They're averaging just a tick under 80 points a game so even assuming the usual defensive effort, the Cats are going to have to find the bucket on offense.

EMAW, baby. Let's get to 4-1; can't afford to be sitting at 3-2 heading to Austin.
