The definition of a toss-up game: when it ends on a buzzer-beater.

So close.
So close.
Brendan Maloney-USA TODAY Sports

Previously on BotC: Ahearn breaks down last night's 67-64 buzzer-beater loss to Texas.

Football:

Courtesy of the Shreveport Times, K-State and Louisiana Tech have confirmed a September 19, 2015 date at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Men's Basketball:

Other media reactions from the usual suspects (Ken Corbitt and Kellis Robinett), Stefan Scrafield at The Daily Texan, Mike Finger at the Houston Chronicle, Matt Norlander at CBSSports, the AP story courtesy of the Dallas Morning News, and from our colleagues at Burnt Orange Nation.

Robinett's post-game points out the 'Cats weaknesses on defense, which bubbled to the fore last night, and the DMN's Chris Hummer offers some perspective from the other side.

NBCSports.com's bracketology has K-State as a 6-seed, traveling to Spokane to face Stanford and, presumably, San Diego State in the West Region, headed by Arizona. The other three top seeds: Syracuse, Michigan State, and The Flaw. The Shockers pull the two seed in the Midwest alongside Sparty.

Women's Basketball:

Some previews of tonight's contest with the Baylor Bears courtesy of Jason Orts at the Waco Tribune and the AD previews from both Baylor and K-State.

Kathleen Gier at the Star takes a look at the current resurgence at both K-State and Kansas -- and also notes that the women's team at Johnson County CC is 19-0 and ranked 2nd in the nation. Yay, Cavaliers! (I took a couple of classes there once, sue me.)

Tennis:

K-State prepares to open the spring calendar this weekend at the ITA Season Kickoff in Athens, GA. The women will face Arkansas in the first match on Friday, then will meet either Georgia or Elon on Saturday.

Other:

The Cap-Journal's sports briefs column notes, among other things, that former Wildcat Robert Streb is in the field for the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines this week.

The Ahearn Fund Student-Athlete Performance Table at BSFS officially opens this week. Pig out, kids, pig out.

K-State is officially purchasing the building which houses Lafene Health Center from Mercy Regional, ensuring its continued availability. (The facility is currently being leased.)
