After five non-conference losses, K-State is likely ready to send 2014 to the dustbin of history. But before ringing in the new year, the Wildcats face the Georgia Bulldogs in a rare major-conference non-conference matchup at Bramlage Coliseum.
Don't expect a beautiful, free-flowing game. As BigE noted in his preview, both Georgia and K-State draw a ton of fouls, and K-State in particular fouls a lot on defense.
K-State needs this game badly, as its margin of error for making the NCAA Tournament is razor thin. This team's problems are of the fixable variety, but fixing a broken mindset is only marginally more doable than fixing a talent deficiency.
In any event, there's always the chance that the light will flicker on and stay on. Maybe it will happen on the last day of the year.
