The final regular season game of the season at Bramlage looms tonight, and a win will ensure K-State of an eighth-place finish in the Big 12. Fortunately for the Wildcats, the opponent standing in their way is actually bad as opposed to maddeningly inconsistent. So the Wildcats now appear to be in good position to arrive at Selection Sunday with at least a .500 record. That's something, right?
The game: Kansas State hosts the TCU Horned Frogs in the final regular season home game of the 2015-16 season, which means it's Senior Night. Bramlage will officially bid farewell to Justin Edwards, Stephen Hurt, and Brian Rohleder. These teams just met 15 days ago in Fort Worth, a 63-49 Wildcat win. K-State leads the all-time series 9-4, 5-1 in Manhattan -- where the Cats have yet to lose against their purple cousins in Big 12 action. Bruce Weber is 6-2 against Trent Johnson; all but one of their meetings have been purple-on-purple affairs, and Weber won that one too.
Odds: K-State is a 10-point favorite. The total is at 132.5, so Vegas is forecasting about a 71-61 Wildcat win.
Tickets: Tickets are available for $15, $35 for chairbacks.
Television: FOX Sports Kansas City at 7:00 CT with Ben Boyle and Stan Weber. Outside Kansas and the Kansas City metro area, the game will only be available on ESPN3 and the ESPN extended coverage package which you may get with your cable or satellite deal.
Radio: K-State Sports Network, with Wyatt Thompson and Matt Walters. Also available on satellite on Sirius 108/XM 200.
